Abstract

We consider an archetypal example of a low-dimensional stochastic web, arising in a 1D oscillator driven by a plane wave of a frequency equal or close to a multiple of the oscillator’s natural frequency. We show that the web can be greatly enlarged by the introduction of a slow, very weak, modulation of the wave angle. Generalizations are discussed. An application to electron transport in a nanometre-scale semiconductor superlattice in electric and magnetic fields is suggested.
