Title: Renormalization analysis of correlation properties in a quasiperiodically forced two-level system
Authors: Mestel, B.D.

Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: We give a rigorous renormalization analysis of the self-similarity of correlation functions in a quasiperiodically forced two-level system. More precisely, the system considered is a quantum two-level system in a time-dependent field consisting of periodic kicks with amplitude given by a discontinuous modulation function driven in a quasiperiodic manner at golden mean frequency. Mathematically, our analysis consists of a description of all piecewise-constant periodic orbits of an additive functional recurrence. We further establish a criterion for such orbits to be globally bounded functions. In a particular example, previously only treated numerically, we further calculate explicitly the asymptotic height of the main peaks in the correlation function.
