We study the classical and quantum dynamics of periodically kicked particles placed initially within an open double-barrier structure. This system does not obey the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser (KAM) theorem and displays chaotic dynamics. The phase-space features induced by non-KAM nature of the system lead to dynamical features such as the nonequilibrium steady state, classically induced saturation of energy growth and momentum filtering. We also comment on the experimental feasibility of this… Expand

Floquet states of a kicked particle in a singular potential: Exponential and power-law profiles.
This work maps this system to a tight-binding model and shows that the nature of decay profile depends on energy band spanned by the Floquet states (in unperturbed basis) relative to the potential height, which can be inferred from the statistics of Floquet eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Expand
Eigenstate thermalization: Deutsch’s approach and beyond
The eigenstate thermalization hypothesis postulates that the energy eigenstates of an isolated many-body system are thermal, i.e., each of them already yields practically the same expectation valuesExpand
