An initial well localized wave packet, in its long time dynamics, exhibits collapse and later recurrence phenomena. The recurrences appear both in classical and quantum dynamics in complex systems. The phenomena may lead to develop newer theoretical techniques to study quantum systems which are chaotic in their classical domain. Moreover, it provides newer methods to scan nanostructures on surfaces in the form of Recurrence tracking microscope.
