Abstract [en]

We study energy propagation in locally time-periodically driven disordered nonlinear chains. For frequencies inside the band of linear Anderson modes, three different regimes are observed with increasing driver amplitude: 1) below threshold, localized quasiperiodic oscillations and no spreading; 2) three different regimes in time close to threshold, with almost regular oscillations initially, weak chaos and slow spreading for intermediate times and finally strong diffusion; 3) immediate spreading for strong driving. The thresholds are due to simple bifurcations, obtained analytically for a single oscillator, and numerically as turning points of the nonlinear response manifold for a full chain. Generically, the threshold is nonzero also for infinite chains.
