In chaotic scattering, an initially freely moving orbit (such as that of an atom or a star) enters a scattering region and evolves chaotically for a period of time before it escapes and returns to free motion. We have looked at cases in which escape can occur in three or more distinct ways. Using a laboratory model, we demonstrate experimentally that the regions of state space (called basins) corresponding to different ways of escaping can have an interesting topological property that we call… Expand
