Point particle in general background fields and generalized equivalence principle
In principle a finite number of variables is enough to get an oscillating rheological response (limit cycles) under steady driving , so it is no surprise oscillations show up here given the complexity of the set equations (11,12) and the number of variables involved.

To see this, recall that the zeros get denser higher up the critical line, and so if β > 0 is fixed and γn is random, one might expect ζ (cid:0) 1 2 + i(γn + β )(cid:1) to be random (whereas, if β was small, it would be highly influenced by the fact that ζ (1/2 + iγn ) = 0).
