Comment on" Quantum suppression of irregularity in the spectral properties of the kicked rotator" Academic Article uri icon


  • It is by now commonlyaccepted that the quasienergy eigenstates of the kicked rotator are localized in the momentum space for generically irrational values of 6. 4 This is due to thesame mechanism as the Anderson localization of an electron on a one-dimensional infinite lattice with random potential. Moreover, it has been rigorously proven that the energy levels for the Anderson problem have Poisson statistics.
