B2: Twist maps and minimal geodesics
Knieper, Kunze
We plan to continue our study of low-dimensional Hamiltonian systems. More specifically, we want to extend certain results, among others by Mather and Neishtadt, for periodic twist maps to the case of non-periodic twist maps as well as to geodesic and Finsler flows on the 2-torus.
