Exponentially small splitting for whiskered tori in Hamiltonian systems: continuation of transverse homoclinic orbits

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider an example of singular or weakly hyperbolic Hamiltonian, with $3$ degrees of freedom, as a model for the behaviour of a nearly-integrable Hamiltonian near a simple resonance. The model consists of an integrable Hamiltonian possessing a $2$-dimensional hyperbolic invariant torus with fast frequencies $\omega/\sqrt\varepsilon$ and coincident whiskers, plus a perturbation of order $\mu=\varepsilon^p$. We choose $\omega$ as the golden vector. Our aim is to obtain asymptotic estimates for the splitting, proving the existence of transverse intersections between the perturbed whiskers for $\varepsilon$ small enough, by applying the Poincaré-Melnikov method together with a accurate control of the size of the error term.
    The good arithmetic properties of the golden vector allow us to prove that the splitting function has 4 simple zeros (corresponding to nondegenerate critical points of the splitting potential), giving rise to 4 transverse homoclinic orbits. More precisely, we show that a shift of these orbits occurs when $\varepsilon$ goes across some critical values, but we establish the continuation (without bifurcations) of the 4 transverse homoclinic orbits for all values of $\varepsilon\to0$.
