Basin entropy and cold atoms

Álvar Daza Esteban (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid)

par Gabriel LeMarié - 24 mars 2016

The idea of basins of attraction has its origin in classical nonlinear dynamics, but it has been proved prolific in a broad range of scientific disciplines. Named after the fluvial analogy, basins refer to the set of initial conditions leading to a particular destination. Despite the quantum nature of propagating matter waves, we can gain new insights by examining these basins of attraction. In particular, we will show how we can experimentally prove the presence of fractal structures in phase space using the concept of basin entropy.
