Abstract

We discuss the behavior of fidelity for a classically chaotic quantum system. We show the existence of a critical value of the perturbation above which the quantum decay, exponential or power law, follows the classical one. The independence of the decay rate of the perturbation strength, discussed in the literature, is a consequence of the quantum-classical correspondence of the relaxation process.
