Two simple and efficient numerical methods to explore the phase space structure are presented, based on the properties of the "dynamical spectra". 1) We calculate a "spectral distance" D of the dynamical spectra for two different initial deviation vectors. D → 0 in the case of chaotic orbits, while D → const ≠ 0 in the case of ordered orbits. This method is by orders of magnitude faster than the method of the Lyapunov Characteristic Number (LCN). 2) We define a sensitive indicator called ROTOR (ROtational TOri Recongnizer) for 2D maps. The ROTOR remains zero in time on a rotational torus, while it tends to infinity at a rate ∝ N = number of iterations, in any case other than a rotational torus. We use this method to locate the last KAM torus of an island of stability, as well as the most important cantori causing stickiness near it.
