Stochastic time evolution in a nonseparable and nonintegrable quantum system is manifested by rapid dephasing of gaussian wavepackets, whose topological distribution in the coordinate-momentum space defines its irregular regions, while wavepackets initiated in regular regions exhibit quasiperiodic evolution. A gradual transition from quasiperiodic to chaotic dynamics with increasing energy is observed.
