The differential topology of energy surfaces of integrable systems determines much of the behavior of the solutions of the corresponding nearintegrable systems. To study this topology, one constructs the ‘bifurcation set’ in the energy-momentum diagram. In the 2 degrees of freedom case, the bifurcation set is composed of curves and isolated points in R. It… (More)
