- A quantum/classical entropy concept for measuring phase-space localization (1997)
- We present an entropy concept measuring phase-space localization in dynamical systems based on time-averaged phase-space densities. This entropy has a direct classical counterpart; its local scaling with ln _h.
- Semiclassical analysis of tunneling splittings in periodically driven quantum systems (1997)
- For periodically driven systems, quantum tunneling between classical resonant stability islands in phase space separated by invariant KAM curves or chaotic regions manifests itself by oscillatory motion of wave packets centered on such an island, by multiplet splittings of the quasienergy spectrum, and by phase space localisation of the quasienergy states on symmetry related ,ux tubes. Qualitatively di,erent types of classical resonant island formation | due to discrete symmetries of the system | and their quantum implications are analysed by a (uniform) semiclassical theory. The results are illustrated by a numerical study of a driven non-harmonic oscillator.
