We will look at a system of hamiltonian equations on the torus, with an initial condition in momentum and a terminal condition in position, that arises in mean field game theory. Existence of and uniqueness of solutions will be shown, and a few remarks will be made in regard to its connection to the minimization problem of a cost functional. This is the second part of lasrt week's talk.

We will present an introduction to the results of S. Aubry and J. Mather who used variational methods to prove the existence of quasi-periodic orbits in twist mappings and in some models appearing in solid state Physics.

We will continue from last week's talk. There are many advances toward proof of Arnold diffusion in Mather's setting. In particular, we will study an approach based on recent work of Marian-Gidea and Jean-Pierre Marco.

A classical theorem of Arnold, Moser shows that in analytic  families of maps close to a rotation we can find maps which are smoothly conjugate to rotations. This is one of the first examples of the KAM theory. We aim to present an efficient numerical algorithm, and its implementation, which approximate the conjugations given by the Theorem

It is well known  that periodic orbits give all the information about dynamical systems, at least for expanding maps, for which the periodic orbits are dense. This turns out to be true in dimensions 1 and 2, and false in dimension 4 or higher.We will present a proof  that  two $C^\infty$ expanding maps of the circle, which are topologically equivalent are $C^\infty$ conjugate if and only if the derivatives or the return map at periodic orbits are the same.

 In this talk, we will give an introduction to the variational approach to dynamical systems. Specifically, we will discuss twist maps and prove the classical results that area-preserving twist map has Birkhoff periodic orbits for each rational rotation number.

A classical theorem of Arnold, Moser shows that in analytic  families of maps close to a rotation we can find maps which are smoothly conjugate to rotations. This is one of the first examples of the KAM theory. We aim to present a self-contained version of Moser's proof and also to present some efficient numerical algorithms.

My talk is about the quasi-periodic motions in multi-scaled Hamiltonian systems. It consists of four part. At first, I will introduce the results in integrable Hamiltonian systems since what we focus on is nearly-integrable Hamiltonian system. The second part is the definition of  nearly-integrable Hamiltonian system and the classical KAM theorem. After then, I will introduce that  what is Poincar\'e problem and some interesting results corresponding to this problem. The last part,  which is also the main part, I will talk about the definition and the background of nearly-integrable  Hamiltonian system, then the persistence of lower dimensional tori on resonant surface, which is our recent  result. I will also simply introduce the Technical ingredients of our work.
