Abstract: This paper presents the first examples of K3 surface automorphisms \(f : X \rightarrow X\) with Siegel disks (domains on which f acts by an irrational rotation). The set of such examples is countable, and the surface \(X\) must be non-projective to carry a Siegel disk. These automorphisms are synthesized from Salem numbers of degree 22 and trace −1, which play the role of the leading eigenvalue for \(f*|H^2(X)\). The construction uses the Torelli theorem, the Atiyah-Bott fixed-point theorem and results from transcendence theory.
