K. Hornberger and U. Smilansky,
Spectral cross correlations of magnetic edge states,
Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 024101 (2002)


We observe strong, non-trivial cross-correlations between the edge states found in the interior and the exterior of magnetic quantum billiards. Our analysis is based on a novel definition of the edge state spectral density which is rigorous, practical and semiclassically accessible.
