Periodic Orbit Maslov Indices for Systems with Time- Reversal Symmetry
Foxman, J.A.; Robbins, J.M.
Keyword(s): Maslov indices; time-reversal; spectral statistics
Abstract: We show that in time-reversal invariant systems, a pair of periodic orbits related by time-reversal have the same Maslov index. Previously this result had been implicitly assumed in the semiclassical derivation of the Gaussian Orthogonal Ensemble (GOE) spectral form factor.
