Periodic Orbits Contribution to the 2Point Correlation Form Factor for PseudoIntegrable Systems
Abstract
Using heuristic arguments based on the trace formulas we relate the 2point correlation form factor, K_{2}(τ), at small values of τ with sums over classical periodic orbits for typical examples of pseudointegrable systems. The later sums have been explicitly calculated for the following models: (i) plane billiards in the form of right triangles with one angle π/n and (ii) rectangular billiards with the AharonovBohm flux line. In the first model, using the properties of the Veech structure, it is shown that K_{2}(0)=(n+∊(n))/(3(n2)), where ∊(n)= 0 for odd n, ∊(n)= 2 for even n not divisible by 3, and ∊(n)=6 for even n divisible by 3. For completeness we also recall informally the main features of the Veech construction. In the second model the answer depends on arithmetical properties of ratios of flux line coordinates to the corresponding sides of the rectangle. When these ratios are noncommensurable irrational numbers, K_{2}(0)=13 , where is the fractional part of the flux through the rectangle when and it is symmetric with respect to the line when . The comparison of these results with numerical calculations of the form factor is discussed in detail. The above values of K_{2}(0) differ from all known examples of spectral statistics, thus confirming analytically the peculiarities of statistical properties of the energy levels in pseudointegrable systems.
