The Attractor of Renormalization and Rigidity of Towers of Critical Circle Maps
Abstract: We demonstrate the existence of a global attractor A with a Cantor set structure for the renormalization of critical circle
mappings. The set A is invariant under a generalized
renormalization transformation, whose action on A is conjugate
to the two-sided shift.
