Three universal oscillatory asymptotic phenomena Michael Berry Physics Department University of Bristol United Kingdom http: //www. phy. bris. ac. uk/staff/berry_mv. html

1. Dominance by subdominant exponentials (DSE) function f(z) with two comparably contributing exponentials for large values of some parameter (not indicated) z plane Stokes line , f+ dominates antistokes line exponentials comparable

F plane stokes line dominant antistokes line subdominant

very common situation: a+ and a- depend differently on z (and hence on F); ignoring logarithms, no loss of generality with m>0 dominant subdominant dominance by subdominant exponential (DSE) if

universal curve stokes line DDE DSE antistokes line zeros lie on DSE boundary

example 1: saddle-point and end-point at t=z, saddle at t=0 dominant subdominant (for Imz>0)

Re. F DSE Im. F Re. F subdominant DSE Im. F dominant

example 4: suppressed end-point saddle at t=z, end-point at z=0, suppressed but dominant for Imz>0

application of f 4(z) to conical diffraction emerging from the slab, an axial spike light incident on a slab of crystal with three different principal dielectric constants crystal slab and a cylinder of light, radius R 0 Hamilton, Lloyd, Poggenforff, Raman… focal image plane entrance face wavelength l M V Berry 2004 ‘Conical diffraction asymptotics: fine structure of Poggendorff rings and axial spike’, J. Opt. A 6, 289 -300

focal image conical-diffraction ring profile is where increasing Z x geometrical optics diffraction (ro=50) far field

secondary rings as interference between geometrical optics (saddle), and wave scattered from conical point (end-point) again, main contribution from subdominant exponential (saddle)

2. Universal attractor of differentiation seek as n increases, “all smooth functions look like cost “ (cf. orthogonal polynomials) z plane t C

if z(t) analytic in a strip including the real axis: singularities (poles or branch points) closest to real axis Imz t 1++it 2+ Rez t t 1 --it 2 - C

assume for simplicity that t 2+≠t 2 - (e. g. z(t) not real), and define t 2 =min(t 2±) then, up to a constant and (real) shift of t origin, m depends on the type of singularity as t increases from - to + , zn(t) describes Maclaurin’s sinusoidal spiral (1718) (universal loops); in polar coordinates,

the nth loop has n/2+1 windings Imz Rez z 0 z 1 z 2 z 9 z 500 universal attractor of hodograph map (‘velocity’ dz/dt)

as n increases, “universal cosine” emerges near t=0: Rez 0(t) Rez 2(t) Rez 10(t) Rez 50(t) Rez 100(t) Rez 500(t) instability of differentiation?

universal loops in geometric phase physics: state vector Y driven by slowly-varying operator H( t) (adiabatic quantum mechanics) as t increases from - to , H describes a loop in operator space Y starts in an eigenstate of H(± ) for small , Y returns to its original form, apart from a phase factor: geometric phase, depending on geometry of H loop geometric phase corrections

geometric phase corrections are determined by time-dependent transformation to eigenbasis of H( t), giving H 1(t), and then iterating to H 2(t), etc; phase corrections are related to areas of Hn loops in the simplest nontrivial case, iterated loops are given by the derivative (hodograph) map: phase corrections get smaller and then inevitably diverge, universally

if z(t) has no finite singularities, asymptotics of zn(t) determined by saddle-points in integral representation, e. g. example (suggested by David Farmer): inverse gamma derivatives 1/G(z) has zeros at z=0, -1, -2…

as n increases, zeros migrate into the positive z axis:

3. Superoscillations a band-limited function has, conventionally, a fastest variation nevertheless - counterintuitively - such functions can oscillate arbitrarily faster than kmax, over arbitrarily large intervals: they can ‘superoscillate’ several recipes, suggested by Aharonov, Popescu…

-function, centred on u=A: suggests a -function, centred on the complex position i. A: so consider the band-limited function where k(u) is even with k(0)=kmax and |k(u)|≤kmax for real u (Aharonov suggested k(u)=kmaxcosu) kmax u

the complex -function argument suggests that, for small , which superoscillates more careful small- analysis: saddle-point method, with =x 2 where saddle at us( , A), where then

superoscillations invisible in power spectrum: narrow spectrum, centred on k=1/a

generalization: integrate over a to generate arbitrary functions locally, as band-limited function example: a locally narrow gaussian narrower than cos(Nx) if A>1

A=4, N=40 g(x) locally, g~exp{-160 x)2/2} cos(40 x)

in signal processing, superoscillations in a function f(t) emerging from a perfect low-pass filter could generate the illusion that the filter is leaky Beethoven’s 9 th symphony - a one-hour signal, requiring up to 20 k. Hz for accurate reproduction - can be generated by a 1 Hz signal (but after the hour, f(t) rises by a factor exp(1019)) in quantum physics, the large-k superoscillations in a function f(x) represent ‘weak values’ of momenta - values outside the spectrum of an operator, obtained in a ‘weak measurement’ - a gamma ray emerging from a box containing only red light
