Abstract

Diamagnetism in a high Rydberg state is characterized by an adiabatic invariant that is quasi-conserved. It is expressed as an angle, sin-1(1/square root 5), that separates two types of localized states, along and perpendicular to the magnetic field. The value of the angle and the origins of localization are traced to the geometry and the dynamics of the interaction. © 1994 IOP Publishing Ltd.
