    Grid map of field sites at Arapaho Prairie in Arthur County, Nebraska. Scale 1 5/16 = 1/4 mile. Shows permanently marked vegetation quadrats, blowouts and ravine washouts, roads, and 100\u27 contour intervals. Part of the map was destroyed by mice. What remains of the map as of 2013 is shown

    Spectra of regular quantum graphs

    Get PDF
    We consider a class of simple quasi one-dimensional classically non-integrable systems which capture the essence of the periodic orbit structure of general hyperbolic nonintegrable dynamical systems. Their behavior is simple enough to allow a detailed investigation of both classical and quantum regimes. Despite their classical chaoticity, these systems exhibit a ``nonintegrable analog'' of the Einstein-Brillouin-Keller quantization formula which provides their spectra explicitly, state by state, by means of convergent periodic orbit expansions.Comment: 32 pages, 10 figure

    A quasi-diagonal approach to the estimation of Lyapunov spectra for spatio-temporal systems from multivariate time series

    Full text link
    We describe methods of estimating the entire Lyapunov spectrum of a spatially extended system from multivariate time-series observations. Provided that the coupling in the system is short range, the Jacobian has a banded structure and can be estimated using spatially localised reconstructions in low embedding dimensions. This circumvents the ``curse of dimensionality'' that prevents the accurate reconstruction of high-dimensional dynamics from observed time series. The technique is illustrated using coupled map lattices as prototype models for spatio-temporal chaos and is found to work even when the coupling is not strictly local but only exponentially decaying.Comment: 13 pages, LaTeX (RevTeX), 13 Postscript figs, to be submitted to Phys.Rev.

    Explicitly solvable cases of one-dimensional quantum chaos

    Get PDF
    We identify a set of quantum graphs with unique and precisely defined spectral properties called {\it regular quantum graphs}. Although chaotic in their classical limit with positive topological entropy, regular quantum graphs are explicitly solvable. The proof is constructive: we present exact periodic orbit expansions for individual energy levels, thus obtaining an analytical solution for the spectrum of regular quantum graphs that is complete, explicit and exact

    A new derivation of Luscher F-term and fluctuations around the giant magnon

    Get PDF
    15 pages, no figures; v2: added assumption on diagonal scattering and a section on generalizations; v3: minor changes, version accepted for publication in JHEPIn this paper we give a new derivation of the generalized Luscher F-term formula from a summation over quadratic fluctuations around a given soliton. The result is very general providing that S-matrix is diagonal and is valid for arbitrary dispersion relation. We then apply this formalism to compute the leading finite size corrections to the giant magnon dispersion relation coming from quantum fluctuations.Peer reviewe

    Effect of noise on coupled chaotic systems

    Get PDF
    Effect of noise in inducing order on various chaotically evolving systems is reviewed, with special emphasis on systems consisting of coupled chaotic elements. In many situations it is observed that the uncoupled elements when driven by identical noise, show synchronization phenomena where chaotic trajectories exponentially converge towards a single noisy trajectory, independent of the initial conditions. In a random neural network, with infinite range coupling, chaos is suppressed due to noise and the system evolves towards a fixed point. Spatiotemporal stochastic resonance phenomenon has been observed in a square array of coupled threshold devices where a temporal characteristic of the system resonates at a given noise strength. In a chaotically evolving coupled map lattice with logistic map as local dynamics and driven by identical noise at each site, we report that the number of structures (a structure is a group of neighbouring lattice sites for whom values of the variable follow certain predefined pattern) follow a power-law decay with the length of the structure. An interesting phenomenon, which we call stochastic coherence, is also reported in which the abundance and lifetimes of these structures show characteristic peaks at some intermediate noise strength.Comment: 21 page LaTeX file for text, 5 Postscript files for figure

    Separability of Black Holes in String Theory

    Full text link
    We analyze the origin of separability for rotating black holes in string theory, considering both massless and massive geodesic equations as well as the corresponding wave equations. We construct a conformal Killing-Stackel tensor for a general class of black holes with four independent charges, then identify two-charge configurations where enhancement to an exact Killing-Stackel tensor is possible. We show that further enhancement to a conserved Killing-Yano tensor is possible only for the special case of Kerr-Newman black holes. We construct natural null congruences for all these black holes and use the results to show that only the Kerr-Newman black holes are algebraically special in the sense of Petrov. Modifying the asymptotic behavior by the subtraction procedure that induces an exact SL(2)^2 also preserves only the conformal Killing-Stackel tensor. Similarly, we find that a rotating Kaluza-Klein black hole possesses a conformal Killing-Stackel tensor but has no further enhancements.Comment: 27 page
