Title: Golden mean renormalization for a generalized Harper equation: The strong coupling fixed point
Authors: Mestel, B.D.
Osbaldestin, Andrew H.
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: We construct a renormalisation fixed point corresponding to the strong coupling limit of the golden mean Harper equation. We give an analytic expression for this fixed point, establish its existence and uniqueness, and verify properties previously seen only in numerical calculations. The spectrum of the linearisation of the renormalisation operator at this fixed point is also explicitly determined. This strong coupling fixed point also helps describe the onset of a strange nonchaotic attractor in quasiperiodically forced systems.
