  • ¹Departament de Fisica, Universitat de les Illes Balears, 07071 Palma de Mallorca, Spain ²Department of Physics, Ben-Gurion University, Beer-Sheva 84105, Israel concentric spherical shells in relative rotation around a time-periodically switching axial direction. In particular, we show the presence in this flow of adiabatically invariant surfaces locally broken by resonances. This corresponds to the observed behavior of two-action Liouvillian maps, ie maps where the evolution of two of the variables is much slower than the third …
