The effective Hamiltonian introduced many years ago by Bloch and generalized later by Wilson, appears to be the ideal starting point for Hamiltonian perturbation theory in quantum field theory. The present contribution derives the Bloch-Wilson Hamiltonian from a generalization of the Gell-Mann-Low theorem, thereby enabling a diagrammatic analysis of Hamiltonian perturbation theory in this approach.

    The KAM theorem for analytic quasi-integrable anisochronous Hamiltonian systems yields that the perturbation expansion (Lindstedt series) for any quasi-periodic solution with Diophantine frequency vector converges. If one studies the Lindstedt series by following a perturbation theory approach,...

    We deal with a perturbation of a hyperbolic integrable Hamiltonian system with n C 1 degrees of freedom. The integrable system is assumed to have n-dimensional hyperbolic invariant tori with coincident whiskers (separatrices). Following Eliasson, we use a geometric approach closely related to...
