- Scar: In physics, and especially quantum chaos, a wavefunction scar is an enhancement of an eigenfunction along unstable classical periodic orbits. Scars are related to the correspondence principle. The existence of the scar is directly implied by the Ehrenfest theorem. While the only way the wave function of the stationary system can propagate is through the evolution of quantum phases of its components and the corresponding Gaussian wave packet must on the other hand move along the classical stable or unstable trajectory there must be therefore eigenstates along the periodic trajectory so large that those components lead to this persistent propagation. Quantum scars in quantum stadium can be readily understood as periodic solutions of the Klein–Gordon equation with the imaginary time when the along width coordinate of the stadium is the time and the scar energy is the square of the relativistic mass energy at rest.
