Chaotic scattering. Plot of a cross section of the stable manifold of the chaotic invariant set from scattering off a potential of the form V(x,y)=(x^2)*(y^2)*exp[-(x^2+y^2)]. Created by taking a grid of initial conditions (initial x coordinate, initial velocity angle theta) at a given energy and integrating them forward.
