Multistability and fractal properties of Hamiltonian lattice models

(10 pages)

Abstract. We investigate a particular N-particle system governed by a Hamiltonian. For this model, we enumerate all locally stable configurations, and as well all the possible displacements of the particles. This is achieved by Redfield-Pólya theory. In particular, we obtain that the number of locally stable configurations increases exponentially with N. The spectrum, which grows exponentially in a quasi self-similar manner is shown to be a fractal with fractal dimension df=1.55.
