Quantum Manifestation of the Classical Bifurcation in the Driven Dissipative Bose-Hubbard Dimer

Muraev, Pavel; Maksimov, Dmitrii; Kolovsky, Andrey// Entropy //


We analyze the classical and quantum dynamics of the driven dissipative Bose–Hubbard dimer. Under variation of the driving frequency, the classical system is shown to exhibit a bifurcation to the limit cycle, where its steady-state solution corresponds to periodic oscillation with the frequency unrelated to the driving frequency. This bifurcation is shown to lead to a peculiarity in the stationary single-particle density matrix of the quantum system. The case of the Bose–Hubbard trimer, where the discussed limit cycle bifurcates into a chaotic attractor, is briefly discussed.
