Abstract:  
The ETH ansatz for matrix elements of a given operator in the energy eigenstate basis results in a notion of thermalization for a chaotic system. In this context for a certain quantity  to be found for a given model  one may impose a particular condition on its matrix elements in the energy eigenstate basis so that the corresponding quantity exhibit linear growth at late times. The condition is to do with a possible pole structure the corresponding matrix elements may have. Based on the general expectation of complexity one may want to think of this quantity as a possible candidate for the quantum complexity. We note, however, that for the explicit examples we have considered in this paper, there are infinitely many quantities exhibiting similar behavior.
