Harmonic inversion has already been proven to be a powerful tool for the analysis of quantum spectra and the periodic orbit orbit quantization of chaotic systems. The harmonic inversion technique circumvents the convergence problems of the periodic orbit sum and the uncertainty principle of the usual Fourier analysis, thus yielding results of high resolution and high precision. Based on the close analogy between periodic orbit trace formulae for regular and chaotic systems the technique is generalized in this paper for the semiclassical quantization of integrable systems. Thus, harmonic inversion is shown to be a universal tool which can be applied to a wide range of physical systems. The method is further generalized in two directions: firstly, the periodic orbit quantization will be extended to include higher order ħ corrections to the periodic orbit sum. Secondly, the use of cross-correlated periodic orbit sums allows us to significantly reduce the required number of orbits for semiclassical quantization, i.e., to improve the efficiency of the semiclassical method. As a representative of regular systems, we choose the circle billiard, whose periodic orbits and quantum eigenvalues can easily be obtained.
