Out-of-time-order correlators (OTOCs) have been proposed as sensitive probes for chaos in interacting quantum systems. They exhibit a characteristic classical exponential growth, but saturate beyond the so-called scrambling or Ehrenfest time τE in the quantum correlated regime. Here we present a path-integral approach for the entire time evolution of OTOCs for bosonic N-particle systems. We first ...
