We present results of an extensive analysis of classical and quantum signatures of chaos in the geometric collective model (GCM) and the interacting boson model (IBM) of nuclei. Apart from comparing the regular fraction of the classical phase space and the Brody parameter for the nearest neighbor spacing distribution in the quantum case, we also adopt (i) the Peres lattices allowing one to distinguish ordered and disordered parts of spectra and to reveal main ordering principles of quantum states, (ii) the geometrical method to determine the position where the transition from order to chaos occurs, and (iii) we look for the 1/fα power law in the power spectrum of energy level fluctuations.

The Peres method demonstrates the adiabatic separation of collective rotations in the IBM.
