Quantum chaos in the finite-temperature Yang-Mills-Higgs system is studied. The energy spectrum of a spatially homogeneous SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs system is calculated within thermofield dynamics. Level statistics of the spectra is studied by plotting nearest-level spacing distribution histograms. It is found that finite-temperature effects lead to a strengthening of chaotic effects, i.e. a spectrum which has the Poissonian distribution at zero temperature has the Gaussian distribution at finite temperature.
