A garden of orchids: a generalized Harper equation at quadratic irrational frequencies.
Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General, 37(39) pp. 9071–9086.
We consider a generalized Harper equation at quadratic irrational flux, showing, in the strong coupling limit, the fluctuations of the exponentially decaying eigenfunctions are governed by the dynamics of a renormalization operator on a renormalization strange set. This work generalizes previous analyses which have considered only the golden mean case. Projections of the renormalization strange sets are illustrated analogous to the 'orchid' present in the golden mean case.
