    Abstract

    Highly regular spatio-temporal or multi-dimensional patterns in the quantum mechanical probability or classical field intensity distributions can appear due to pair interference between individual eigen-modes of the system forming the so called intermode traces. These patterns are strongly pronounced if the intermode traces are multi-degenerate. This phenomenon occurs in many areas of wave physics.
