Or the face of the woman who bore me,
With her battered badge still scarring my cap,
And the drums of defeat before me.

Shrink and consume my heart, as heat the scroll;
And wrath has left its scar--that fire of hell
Has left its frightful scar upon my soul.

With trebled sound: its weary threshold scarred
With scattered dead once more, and wild with cries.

Ancient scars of trench and tomb

Where the bones of poets bloom.

Of each bold adventure, and every brave scar;
And trust me, I'll smile, though my een they may glisten;
For sweet after danger's the tale of the war.

In science:
In particular, the scarring results of Faure-Nonnemacher- de Bi`evre [FNB] and the variance results of Kurlberg-Rudnick [KR] and Schubert [Schu3] are very relevant to the scarring and variance results we present in the Riemannian setting.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
This is one of the fundamental obstacles to understanding whether or how scarring occurs in the Riemannian case.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
For a sparse sequence of Planck constants k , there exist eigenfunctions of the quantum cat map which partly scar on a hyperbolic ﬁxed point (see Faure-Nonnenmacher-de Bi`evre [FNB]).
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
The question we address in this section is the possible mass proﬁle of such a scarring eigenfunction in a neighborhood of γ .
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
And exceptional sequences ‘scarring’ on a certain 1-parameter family of periodic orbits exists for the Bunimovich stadium [Has].
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
At this time, there are no known examples of sequences of eigenfunctions or quasi-modes for (M , g ) with ergodic geodesic ﬂow that ‘weakly scar’ along a hyperbolic closed orbit γ and no results prohibiting them.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
Before considering possible mass proﬁles of eigenfunctions scarring on hyperbolic closed geodesics, let us recall the opposite and much better known case of scarring of Gaussian beams along elliptic closed geodesics on surfaces [Ra, Ra2, B.B].
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
This allows scarring sequences along a hyperbolic orbit to occur, it just limits the rate at which the mass concentrates near γ .
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
An obvious question at this point is whether there are any examples of (M , g ), with any type of geodesic ﬂow, possessing a sequence of eigenfunctions scarring on a closed hyperbolic orbit.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
The mass proﬁle of scarring eigenfunctions near a hyperbolic in the completely integrable case is studied in [CVP] on tubes of ﬁxed radius and in [NV, TZ2] on tubes of shrinking radius.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
Thus, the mass proﬁle of such scarring integrable eigenfunctions only differs by the numerical factor (1 − 2δ) from the mass proﬁle of Gaussian beams.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
It makes an interesting comparison to the situation discussed later on of possible scarring in the Anosov case.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
Yet, in the “cat map” analogue, there do exist scarring eigenfunctions [FNB, FN] for a special sparse sequence of Planck constants.
Recent developments in mathematical Quantum Chaos
This led us, in particular, to a simple result concerning the formation of pre-scarred surfaces2.
On emerging scarred surfaces for the Einstein vacuum equations
The proof relies on a natural modiﬁcation of the proof in theorem 1.14 and is discussed in section 5. (3) We give a large class of critical, suﬃcient conditions on the initial data, which lead to the formation of pre-scarred surfaces.
