Abstract. We consider the long time behavior of a quantum particle in a 2-D magnetic field which is homogeneous of degree $-1$. If the field never vanishes, above a certain energy the associated classical dynamical system has a globally attracting periodic orbit in a reduced phase space. For that energy regime, we construct a simple approximate evolution based on this attractor, and prove that it completely describes the quantum dynamics of our system.
