We consider the admittance of a chaotic quantum dot, capacitively coupled to a gate and connected to two electron reservoirs by multichannel ballistic point contacts. For a dot in the regime of weak localization and universal conductance fluctuations, we calculate the average and variance of the admittance using random-matrix theory. We find that the admittance is governed by two time scales: the classical admittance depends on the RC time τ of the quantum dot, but the relevant time scale for the weak-localization correction and the admittance fluctuations is the dwell time. An extension of the circular ensemble is used for a statistical description of the energy dependence of the scattering matrix.
