Abstract

It is pointed out that scaling (multifractal) properties of chaotic repellers underlying irregular scattering in two-degrees-of-freedom systems can be deduced by measuring simple length scales generated hierarchically along a straight line taken far away from the interaction region, or on the Poincaré plane, and analyzing them in the spirit of the thermodynamic formalism. The method is easier to apply than a periodic orbit analysis.
