On classical series expansions for quasi-periodic motions. (English) Zbl 0891.58016
Summary: We reconsider the problem of convergence of classical expansions in a parameter \(\varepsilon\) for quasiperiodic motions on invariant tori in nearly integrable Hamiltonian systems. Using a reformulation of the algorithm proposed by Kolmogorov, we show that if the frequencies satisfy the nonresonance condition proposed by Bruno, then one can construct a normal form such that the coefficient of \(\varepsilon^s\) is a sum of \(O(C^s)\) terms each of which is bounded by \(O(C^s)\). This allows us to produce a direct proof of the classical \(\varepsilon\) expansions. We also discuss some relations between our expansions and Lindstedt’s ones.
