ABSTRACT
We study the splitting of invariant manifolds of whiskered tori with two or three frequencies in nearly-integrable Hamiltonian systems, such that the hyperbolic part is given by a pendulum. We consider a 2-dimensional torus with a frequency vector Ï‰ = (1,Î©), where Î© is a quadratic irrational number, or a 3-dimensional torus with a frequency vector Ï‰ = (1,Î©,Î©2), where Î© is a cubic irrational number. Applying the PoincarÃ©â€“Melnikov method, we find exponentially small asymptotic estimates for the maximal splitting distance between the stable and unstable manifolds associated to the invariant torus, and we show that such estimates depend strongly on the arithmetic properties of the frequencies. In the quadratic case, we use the continued fractions theory to establish a certain arithmetic property, fulfilled in 24 cases, which allows us to provide asymptotic estimates in a simple way. In the cubic case, we focus our attention to the case in which is the so-called cubic golden number (the real root of x3 +xâ€“1 = 0), obtaining also asymptotic estimates. We point out the similitudes and differences between the results obtained for both the quadratic and cubic cases.

Hazard rates play an important role in various areas, e.g. reliability theory, survival analysis, biostatistics, queueing theory, and actuarial studies. Mixtures of distributions are also of great preeminence in such areas as most populations of components are indeed heterogeneous. In this study...

We study a Hamiltonian system that has a superquadratic potential and is asymptotic to an autonomous system. In particular, we show the existence of a nontrivial solution homoclinic to zero. Many results of this type rely on a convexity condition on the nonlinearity, which makes the problem...

Under the assumption of strong (classical) pump condition, the coherent light interacting with a medium of second-order nonlinearity gives rise to a model represented by a quadratic Hamiltonian. By exploiting this model, we obtain the squeezing and the higherorder squeezing of the input coherent...
