Abstract

We give an overview of wave scattering in open cavities in which the ray dynamics is chaotic. In the limit of short wavelengths certain properties emerge that are universal and do not depend on the details of the cavity. These universal features are described by random matrix theory. We discuss in particular results that characterize the transmission probabilities and transmission times of waves through the cavity. Short-wavelength approximations that use statistical properties of long rays are able to explain this universality.
