# Golden mean renormalization for a generalized Harper equation: The strong coupling fixed point

@inproceedings{Mestel2000GoldenMR, title={Golden mean renormalization for a generalized Harper equation: The strong coupling fixed point}, author={Ben Mestel and Andrew H. Osbaldestin}, year={2000} }

We construct a renormalisation fixed point corresponding to the strong coupling limit of the golden
mean Harper equation. We give an analytic expression for this fixed point, establish its existence and
uniqueness, and verify properties previously seen only in numerical calculations. The spectrum of the
linearisation of the renormalisation operator at this fixed point is also explicitly determined. This strong
coupling fixed point also helps describe the onset of a strange nonchaotic attractor…

Numerical investigation on the dissipative standard map suggests that this universal number could become observable in experiments, and is argued that the (minimal) slope of the critical iterated circle map is proportional to the effective Jacobian determinant.
