We give a systematic method for discretizing Hamiltonian partial differential equations (PDEs) with constant symplectic structure, while preserving their energy exactly. The same method, applied to PDEs with constant dissipa-tive structure, also preserves the correct monotonic decrease of energy. The method is illustrated by many examples. In the(More)
We investigate what happens to periodic orbits and lower-dimensional tori of Hamiltonian systems under discretisation by a symplectic one-step method where the system may have more than one degree of freedom. We use an embedding of a symplectic map in a quasi-periodic non-autonomous flow and a KAM result of Jorba and Villaneuva [11] to show that periodic(More)
