Ordered and Periodic Chaos of the Bounded One-Dimensional Multibarrier Potential



Numerical analysis indicates that there exists an unexpected new ordered chaos for the bounded one-dimensional multibarrier potential. For certain values of the number of barriers, repeated identical forms (periods) of the wavepackets result upon passing through the multibarrier potential.
