Paper Abstract

We apply the dynamical symmetry method for treating quantum atomic dynamics both in a prescribed laser field and in a self- consistent radiation field. In the framework of such an approach a new reasonable criterion for 'quantum chaos' that is connected with the behavior of the dynamical-group parameter in the pseudophase plane can be introduced in addition to the known criteria. For the simplest SU(2) model (an ensemble of two-level atoms), it is shown that the atomic dynamics essentially depend on a field polarization. The motion of SU(2) parameter g in the plane Re g - Im g is quite regular for a circular polarization and is ergodic for a linear one.
