A note on integrable mechanical systems on surfaces

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Let $\mathfrak{S}$ be a compact, connected surface and $H \in C^2(T^* \mathfrak{S})$ a Tonelli Hamiltonian. This note extends V. V. Kozlov's result on the Euler characteristic of $\mathfrak{S}$ when $H$ is real-analytically integrable, using a definition of topologically-tame integrability called semisimplicity. Theorem: If $H$ is $2$-semisimple, then $\mathfrak{S}$ has non-negative Euler characteristic; if $H$ is $1$-semisimple, then $\mathfrak{S}$ has positive Euler characteristic.
