### About Palais' remark that an isometry of Riemannian manifolds does not induce an isometry of the Hilbert manifolds of curves

In the paper ``Morse theory on Hilbert manifolds'' (1963), on page
326, Richard Palais makes a remark that if $\phi\colon V \to W$ is an
isometry (of submanifolds of $\mathbb{R}^n$), then this does ...

### index form and quasi periodic vector fields

Let $M$ be a manifold ($\dim M \geq 2$) and $$\Lambda M=\{ c: S^1 \rightarrow M|\, c\text{ absolutely continous and }\|\dot{c}\|_{L_2(S^1)}< \infty \}$$ the space of closed curves on $M$ with ...
