The symmetric 1:2 resonance    [PDF]

Antonella Marchesiello, Giuseppe Pucacco
This paper illustrates the application of Lie transform normal-form theory to the construction of the 1:2 resonant normal form corresponding to a wide class of natural Hamiltonian systems. We show how to compute the bifurcations of the main periodic orbits in a potential with double reflection symmetries. The stability analysis of the normal modes and of the periodic orbits in general position allows us to get overall informations on the phase-space structure of systems in which this resonance is dominating. As an example we apply these results to a class of models useful as galactic potentials.
