  author={A. Ya. Maltsev and Sergei Novikov},
  journal={Russian Mathematical Surveys},
  pages={141 - 173}
This survey is devoted to questions connected with the Novikov problem of describing the geometry of level curves of quasi-periodic functions on the plane with different numbers of quasi-periods. Considered here are the history of the question, the current state of research in this field, and a number of applications of this problem to various physical problems. The main focus is on applications of results obtained in this area to the theory of transport phenomena in electron systems…

We consider the behavior of classical and quantum oscillations in metals with complex Fermi surfaces near the directions of $\, {\bf B} \, $ corresponding to changes in the topological structure of
Reconstructions of the Electron Dynamics in Magnetic Field and the Geometry of Complex Fermi Surfaces
The paper considers the semiclassical dynamics of electrons on complex Fermi surfaces in the presence of strong magnetic fields. The reconstructions of the general topological structure of such
A bound on quantum chaos from Random Matrix Theory with Gaussian Unitary Ensemble
A bstractIn this article, using the principles of Random Matrix Theory (RMT) with Gaussian Unitary Ensemble (GUE), we give a measure of quantum chaos by quantifying Spectral From Factor (SFF)
Arnoux-Rauzy interval exchange transformations
The Arnoux-Rauzy systems are defined in [5], both as symbolic systems on three letters and exchanges of six intervals on the circle. In connection with a conjecture of S.P. Novikov, we investigate


Quasiperiodic functions and dynamical systems in quantum solid state physics
Abstract.This is a survey article dedicated to the study of topological quantities in theory of normal metals discovered in the works of the authors during the last years. Our results are based on
The Theory of Closed 1-Forms, Levels of Quasiperiodic Functions and Transport Phenomena in Electron Systems
The paper is devoted to the applications of the theory of dynamical systems to the theory of transport phenomena in metals in the presence of strong magnetic fields. More precisely, we consider the
Topology of quasi-periodic functions on the plane
In this paper the topological theory of quasi-periodic functions on the plane is presented. The development of this theory was started (in another terminology) by the Moscow topology group in the
Quasiperiodic functions theory and the superlattice potentials for a two-dimensional electron gas
We consider Novikov problem of the classification of level curves of quasiperiodic functions on the plane and its connection with the conductivity of two-dimensional electron gas in the presence of
Topological Phenomena in Normal Metals
This paper is devoted to topological phenomena in normal metals with rather complicated Fermi surface. The results of the article are based on the deep topological theorems concerning the geometry of
Characterization of the set of 'ergodic directions' in Novikov's problem of quasi-electron orbits in normal metals
In this paper we give a beautiful characterization of the ‘ergodic directions’ in Novikov’s problem of semiclassical orbits of quasi-electrons in a normal metal. Since the end of the 1950s physicists

Diffusion for chaotic plane sections of 3-periodic surfaces
We study chaotic plane sections of some particular family of triply periodic surfaces. The question about possible behavior of such sections was posed by S. P. Novikov. We prove some estimations on

Existence and measure of ergodic leaves in Novikov's problem on the semiclassical motion of an electron
We show that ``ergodic regime'' appears for generic dispersion relations in the semiclassical motion of electrons in a metal and we prove that, in the fixed energy picture, the measure of the set of
