Critical Scaling Behaviors of Period n-Tuplings in Area-Preserving Maps

  Using both a direct numerical method and a renormalization-group method, we studied the critical scaling behaviors associated with Multifurcations  through Period n-Tuplings (n=3, 4, 5, ...) in area-preserving maps. At the accumulation point of each period n-tuplings, an infinitely nested islands of all classes exist and they exhibit an asymptotically self-similar structure. Unlike the period-doubling (n=2) case, these islands play the role "trap," near which trajectories may have long-time correlations. It is thus found  that the pattern of islands repeat itself asymptotically from one class k to the next class k+1 for even n-tuplings and to every other class k+2 for odd n-tuplings. Furthermore, we also studied the global scaling of the  asymptotically self-similar pattern by obtaining the power spectrum, $f(\alpha)$ spectrum, and the generalized dimensions.
