Dynamical Systems Working Seminar
Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 5:00pm
1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
In previous talks, we discussed an algorithm (Nash-Moser iteration) to compute invariant whiskered tori for fibered holomorphic maps. Several geometric and number-theoretic conditions are necessary to carry out each step of the iteration. Recently, there has been interest in studying what happens if some of the conditions are removed. In particular, the second Melnikov condition we found can be hard to verify in higher dimensional problems. In this talk, we will use a method due to Eliasson, Moser and Poschel to obtain quasi-periodic solutions which, however, lose an important geometric property relative to the solutions previously constructed.
