Paper Abstract

With the help of Lyapunov exponents different routes to quantum chaos are demonstrated numerically in two semiclassical models of the interaction of N two-level atoms with their own radiation field in a resonant cavity. The usual transition to chaos is observed when varying the external control parameter b which describes the interaction of the atomic ensemble with the field. After reaching its critical value b approximately equal to 1 the system becomes more and more chaotic as b increases. As the second control parameter a (the dimensionless individual Rabi frequency) increases the system undergoes transitions to chaos by a completely different way. We observe a complex sequence of order-to-chaos transitions that resembles those for the classical Lorenz attractor.
