    • Abstract


      A trace formula for the oscillating part of the level density for a spherical billiard has been obtained in spherical polar coordinates. The Jacobian of stability and the length of the orbits are obtained from the classical mechanics of the problem. The same formula is applicable to both the planar and the diametric orbits. Numerical results have been obtained with this formula and compared with the results from exact quantum theory, EBK quantization, and Balian and Bloch.
