@article{Chardard2006FastCO, title={Fast computation of the Maslov index for hyperbolic linear systems with periodic coefficients}, author={Fr{\'e}d{\'e}ric Chardard and Fr{\'e}d{\'e}ric Dias and Thomas J. Bridges}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={2006}, volume={39}, pages={14545-14557} }

The Maslov index is a topological property of periodic orbits of finite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems that is widely used in semiclassical quantization, quantum chaology, stability of waves and classical mechanics. The Maslov index is determined from the analysis of a linear Hamiltonian system with periodic coefficients. In this paper, a numerical scheme is devised to compute the Maslov index for hyperbolic linear systems when the phase space has a low dimension. The idea is to compute on the…
