It is shown that a relevant control of Hamiltonian chaos is possible through suitable small perturbations whose form can be explicitly computed. In particular, it is possible to control (reduce) the chaotic diffusion in the phase space of a Hamiltonian system with 1.5 degrees of freedom which models the diffusion of charged test particles in a turbulent electric field across the confining magnetic field in controlled thermonuclear fusion devices. Though still far from practical applications… Expand

This work uses a method of control for near-integrable Hamiltonians that consists of the addition of a small and simple control term that creates invariant tori in phase space that prevent chaos from spreading to large regions, making the controlled dynamics more regular. Expand

The motion of a charged particle in a tokamak magnetic field is studied and the presence of chaos implies that no third global constant exists, and this fact is highlighted by looking at variations of the first order of the magnetic moment in this chaotic setting. Expand
