  1. page 29: Replace   time-dependent   by   time-independent  
     
  2. page 30: First line of equation (2.11.9)

     
  3. page 84: Third line above (4.13.6) should read
    |k|, n ≥ 1. Thus ...
     
  4. page 85: Extend (4.13.13) by fourth member

     
  5. page 99: Delete  ship  in second line below (4.14.25).
    Extend (4.14.24) by third member


     
  6. page 118: Replace   (-1) n  by   (-1) n +1   on rhs of last equation in exercise 4.13
     
  7. page 149: In second line below (6.5.2), the vector should read

     
  8. page 200: Insert  0  in (6.15.6), ...  0   for λ → 0
     
  9. page 228: Replace   reserved   by   reversed   in fifth line of figure caption
     
  10. page 233: Replace  int  by  ∫  in first line of (7.4.19)
     
  11. page 293: Insert sentence after   ... window Δn.  in first line after (8.6.2)
    Note that non-periodic orbits were excluded by setting x=x0 ,
    with appeal to the asymptotic independence of x in both members of (8.6.1).
     
  12. page 299: The sentence after equation (8.7.15) must read
    That trace may obviously be interpreted as an integrated return probability.
     
  13. page 306: In second line after (8.9.11) replace  only for maps  by  for maps, only
    (note that only after that permutation of words the sentence begins to make sense)  
  14. page 315: In first line insert  not quite  in front of  the same
     
  15. page 316: Replace  (-1)n   by  (-1)n+1  in both instances in (8.11.2)
    as well as in the formula two lines below (8.11.2)

     
  16. page 317: The last two lines must be replaced with
    and as phase-space fractions is approximated by
    superimposing two independent ladders of levels, one Poissonian and the other Wignerian,
    in the way explained in Sect. 5.6. The resulting spacing distribution reads, for ,
     
  17. page 318: The first line must be cancelled and equation (8.12.1) replaced with

     
  18. page 320: The second sentence must read
    In contrast to the Frobenius-Perron operator, however, the Q propagator may be
    an Nq2 ×Nq2 matrix, where Nq2 =Ω/hf is the number of Planck cells contained
    in the classical accessible phase-space volume; note that Weyl's law fixes Nq as the
    effective number of components of the wave function.
     
  19. page 320: Replace   N<<Nq  by   N<<Nq2   in ninth line
     
  20. page 330: equation (9.3.6)

     
  21. page 365: Replace  tridiagonalizing  by  triangularizing  in first line and similarly
    in the fourth line below (9.10.19)

     
  22. page 417: In first line below (10.6.1) write instead of
