### Continuity of the period for periodic orbits next to a stationary point

Let $v\in\mathcal{C}^1(\mathbb{R}^n,\mathbb{R}^n)$ $(n\geq 2)$ a vector field, such that the set $E=\{v=0\}$ is a manifold of dimension $n-2$. Assume that for every $x\in\mathbb{R}^n-E$, the ...

### Chain recurrent points of a gradient-like system

Let $X$ be a compact metric space and $f:X\to X
$ homeomorphism. Let $V:X\to \mathbb{R}$ be a Lyapunov function for $(X,f)$ (continuous function such that $(\forall x\notin Fix(f))\ \ V(f(x))<V(x))...

### Can all (inverse) trigonometric functions with periodic iterates be characterized?

I wonder whether all (composites of) trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions with periodic functional iterations can be found. In order to specify what I mean by that, let's introduce some ...

### Genericity of contact structures all of whose closed Reeb orbits are nondegenerate

First, a contact form $\alpha$ on $M$ with Reeb vector field $R$ is said to be non-degenerate if, for any point $p$ such that $\phi_T^R(p) = p$, we have $\det{(\textrm{id}_{T_pM} - (d \phi_T^R)_p)} \...

### Exact solution to a periodic linear ODE sought

We have been studying a Hamiltonian system that possesses a one-parameter family of periodic orbits, depending on the energy level $h$. We "know" via various non-rigorous means that these ...

### Is my ansatz for finding $n$-periodic-points of the exponential-function exhaustive?

The following is about getting help for a proof on existence and indexability of periodic points of the exponential-function, here with base $e:=\exp(1)$.
Update The question is a complete rewriting ...

### An elliptic operator whose corresponding symbol Hamiltonian vector field has an isolated periodic orbit

Let $D$ be a differential operator on the space of smooth functions on a manifold $M$. The symbol of $D$ can be considered as a Hamiltonian on the cotangent bundle $T^*M$. We call ...
