Systems of transversal sections for 3-dimensional Reeb flows


Since the works of Poincaré and Birkhoff global cross sections are used to study Hamiltonian dynamics restricted to energy levels. Modern methods in Sympletic Dynamics provide an alternative way to study dynamics when such cross sections do not exist. The so called systems of transversal sections are codimension 1 singular foliations of the energy level whose singularity is formed by finitely many periodic orbits. Such systems are obtained via pseudo holomorphic curves in the symplectization of contact manifolds. This projects focus on the existence of the systems of transversal sections for classical Hamiltonian systems such as the Euler problem in the plane and the restricted three body problem. (AU)
