Abstract

The detailed phase space structure near the smooth outermost KAM surface is studied carrying out with the mushroom billiard. When the rotation number of the outermost surface α is the rational Fibonacci ratio (αk = Fk+2/Fk+4, k ≥ 0), some singular points always exist on the outermost surface, but the stagnant layers sharply disappear when k increases. On the other hand, when the rotation number approaches to the limit irrational number (k → ∞), some singular periodic points remain in chaotic sea far from the outermost KAM surface, and that the stagnant layers are formed arround each singular point. The phase volume of the stagnant layers is theoretically evaluated, and it is shown that the trapping time in each stagnant layer obeys the inverse power distribution. This explains the universal aspect of the slow dynamics in the mushroom billiard, where the power spectral density reveals |log ω| (ω ≪ 1) for \(0.5 \lesssim r/R\) indifferent from the rotation number α of the outermost KAM surface. Indeed, even ...
