The generic symplectic \(C^1\)-diffeomorphisms of four-dimensional symplectic manifolds are hyperbolic, partially hyperbolic or have a completely elliptic periodic point. (English) Zbl 1030.37037

The title of this paper reflects well the main result. More precisely, a refinement of a result of S. E. Newhouse [Am. J. Math. 99, 1061-1087 (1977; Zbl 0379.58011)] is given in a four-dimensional case.
