The study of quantum systems which are chaotic in the classical limit (quantum chaos or quantum chaology) is a fairly new field of research. Not long ago, it was still considered an esoteric subject. However this attitude changed radically when it was realized that this subject is relevant to many of the more mature branches of physics. This work presents the accumulated knowledge available up until now and at the same time introduces topics which are being intensively studied at present. Their relevance to other fields such as condensed matter, atomic and nuclear physics is also discussed. The lectures have been divided into two rough categories - background and advanced lectures.
