Existence of KAM tori for presymplectic vector fields
Sean Bauer, Nikola P. Petrov
Abstract:
We prove the existence of a torus that is invariant with respect to the flow of a
vector field that preserves the presymplectic form in an exact presymplectic manifold.
The flow on this invariant torus is conjugate to a linear flow on a torus with a
Diophantine velocity vector.
The proof has an "a posteriori" format, the the invariant torus is constructed by
using a Newton method in a space of functions, starting from a torus that is approximately
invariant. The geometry of the problem plays a major role in the construction
by allowing us to construct a special adapted basis in which the equations that need to
be solved in each step of the iteration have a simple structure.
In contrast to the classical methods of proof, this method does not assume that
the system is close to integrable, and does not rely on using actionangle variables.
