# Exponentially Small Splitting of Invariant Manifolds of Parabolic Points

Share this page
*Inmaculada Baldomá; Ernest Fontich*

We consider families of one and a half degrees of freedom
Hamiltonians with high frequency periodic dependence on time, which are
perturbations of an autonomous system.

We suppose that the origin is a parabolic fixed point with
non-diagonalizable linear part and that the unperturbed system has a homoclinic
connection associated to it. We provide a set of hypotheses under which the
splitting is exponentially small and is given by the Poincaré-Melnikov
function.
