Abstract: The semiclassical analysis of Eckhardt et al for the variance of quantum expectation values in classically chaotic systems is extended to obtain the transitional form as time-reversal symmetry is gradually broken. Numerical results for a family of perturbed cat maps confirm this analysis, including the halving of the variance as time-reversal symmetry is fully broken.
