    • Abstract


      The invariants of chaotic bounded Hamiltonian systems and their relation to the solutions of the first variational equations of the equations of motion are studied. We show that these invariants are characterized by the fact that they either lose the property of differentiability as functions on phase space or that a certain formal power series defined in terms of the derivatives of the invariants has zero radius of convergence. For a specific example, we show that the former possibility appears to apply.
