We review the random matrix description of electron transport through open quantum dots, subject to time-dependent perturbations. All characteristics of the current linear in the bias can be expressed in terms of the scattering matrix, calculated for a time-dependent Hamiltonian. Assuming that the Hamiltonian belongs to a Gaussian ensemble of random matrices, we investigate various statistical properties of the direct current in the ensemble. Particularly, even at zero bias the time-dependent

We discuss dependence of the photovoltaic current and its noise on the frequency and the strength of the perturbation. We also describe the effect of time-dependent perturbation on the weak localization correction to the conductance and on conductance fluctuations.
