# Measure and Capacity of Wandering Domains in Gevrey Near-Integrable Exact Symplectic Systems

*Laurent Lazzarini; Jean-Pierre Marco; David Sauzin*

A wandering domain for a diffeomorphism \(\Psi \) of
\(\mathbb A^n=T^*\mathbb T^n\) is an open connected
set \(W\) such that \(\Psi ^k(W)\cap W=\emptyset \) for
all \(k\in \mathbb Z^*\). The authors endow \(\mathbb A^n\) with
its usual exact symplectic structure. An integrable diffeomorphism, i.e.,
the time-one map \(\Phi ^h\) of a Hamiltonian \(h: \mathbb
A^n\to \mathbb R\) which depends only on the action variables, has
no nonempty wandering domains.

The aim of this paper is to estimate the
size (measure and Gromov capacity) of wandering domains in the case of
an exact symplectic perturbation of \(\Phi ^h\), in the analytic
or Gevrey category. Upper estimates are related to Nekhoroshev theory;
lower estimates are related to examples of Arnold diffusion. This is a
contribution to the “quantitative Hamiltonian perturbation theory”
initiated in previous works on the optimality of long term stability
estimates and diffusion times; the emphasis here is on discrete systems
because this is the natural setting to study wandering domains.
