Abstract : A quantity related to the elastic enhancement in nuclear reactions is introduced to analyze how the transition from integrable to chaotic behavior is a classical system is reflected in the eigenstates of the corresponding quantum system. Its behavior is first studied for random matrix models believed to represent such a transition, namely, a band matrix ensemble as well as a Poisson ensemble perturbed by a Gaussian orthogonal ensemble. Both of these display similar behavior. We then show that the same characteristics may be found in a more realistic system showing such a transition, namely, molecular Rydberg states calculated for high angular momenta.
