Characterization of diffeomorphisms that are symplectomorphisms

Stanisław Janeczko, Zbigniew Jelonek (2009)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let ( X , ω X ) and ( Y , ω Y ) be compact symplectic manifolds (resp. symplectic manifolds) of dimension 2n > 2. Fix 0 < s < n (resp. 0 < k ≤ n) and assume that a diffeomorphism Φ : X → Y maps all 2s-dimensional symplectic submanifolds of X to symplectic submanifolds of Y (resp. all isotropic k-dimensional tori of X to isotropic tori of Y). We prove that in both cases Φ is a conformal symplectomorphism, i.e., there is a constant c ≠0 such that Φ * ω Y = c ω X .

Hofer’s metrics and boundary depth

Michael Usher (2013)

Annales scientifiques de l'École Normale Supérieure

We show that if ( M , ω ) is a closed symplectic manifold which admits a nontrivial Hamiltonian vector field all of whose contractible closed orbits are constant, then Hofer’s metric on the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of  ( M , ω ) has infinite diameter, and indeed admits infinite-dimensional quasi-isometrically embedded normed vector spaces. A similar conclusion applies to Hofer’s metric on various spaces of Lagrangian submanifolds, including those Hamiltonian-isotopic to the diagonal in  M × M when M satisfies...

Rational invariant tori, phase space tunneling, and spectra for non-selfadjoint operators in dimension 2

Michael Hitrik, Johannes Sjöstrand (2008)

Annales scientifiques de l'École Normale Supérieure

We study spectral asymptotics and resolvent bounds for non-selfadjoint perturbations of selfadjoint h -pseudodifferential operators in dimension 2, assuming that the classical flow of the unperturbed part is completely integrable. Spectral contributions coming from rational invariant Lagrangian tori are analyzed. Estimating the tunnel effect between strongly irrational (Diophantine) and rational tori, we obtain an accurate description of the spectrum in a suitable complex window, provided that the...

Submanifolds and the Hofer norm

Michael Usher (2014)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

In [Ch00], Chekanov showed that the Hofer norm on the Hamiltonian diffeomorphism group of a geometrically bounded symplectic manifold induces a nondegenerate metric on the orbit of any compact Lagrangian submanifold under the group. In this paper we consider the orbits of more general submanifolds. We show that, for the Chekanov–Hofer pseudometric on the orbit of a closed submanifold to be a genuine metric, it is necessary for the submanifold to be coisotropic, and we show that this condition is...
