Direct Regular-to-Chaotic Tunneling Rates Using the Fictitious Integrable System Approach

By Arnd Bäcker, Roland Ketzmerick and Steffen Löck


In systems with a mixed phase space, where regular and chaotic motion coexists, regular states are coupled to the chaotic region by dynamical tunneling. We give an overview on the determination of direct regular-to-chaotic tunneling rates using the fictitious integrable system approach. This approach is applied to different kicked systems, including the standard map, and successfully compared with numerical data. This text corresponds to Chapter 6 of the book: Dynamical Tunneling - Theory and Experiment, edited by S. Keshavamurthy and P. Schlagheck [Taylor and Francis CRC (2011)].
