Regular and Chaotic Behaviour of a Kicked Damped Spin
Languages of publication
The dynamics of a kicked, anisotropic, damped spin is reduced to a two-dimensional map. This map exhibits such features as bifurcation diagrams, regular or chaotic attractors/repellors and intermittent-like transitions between two strange attractors. With increase of damping a transition from chaos to the fixed point attractor occurs. On the contrary to the Hamiltonian case the type of magnetic anisotropy plays a crucial role for damped models.
