Linda E. Reichl (born 1942)[1] is a statistical physicist who works in the Center for Complex Quantum Systems at the University of Texas at Austin,[2] and is known for her research on quantum chaos.[3]


Reichl completed her Ph.D. in 1969 at the University of Denver with the dissertation Microscopic Theory of Quasiparticle Spin Fluctations in a Fermi Liquid.[4] She was advised by Elizabeth R. Tuttle and Ilya Prigogine.[5]


Reichl's books include:

  • A Modern Course in Statistical Physics (University of Texas Press, 1980; 4th ed., Wiley, 2016)[6]
  • The Transition to Chaos: Conservative Systems and Quantum Manifestations (Springer, 1992; 2nd ed., 2004)[7]

She is also the co-editor of several volumes of collected papers.


Reichl became a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2000 "for her original contributions to the field of quantum chaos".[3]
