Abstract:
We shall use a Renormalization Group (RG) scheme in order to prove the classical KAM result in the case of a non-analytic perturbation (the latter will be assumed to have continuous derivatives up to a sufficiently large order). We shall proceed by solving a sequence of problems in which the perturbations are analytic approximations of the original one. We shall finally show that the sequence of the approximate solutions will converge to a differentiable solution of the original problem.

Abstract:
In this paper, we consider a time independent $C^2$ Hamiltonian, sa\-tisfying the usual hypothesis of the classical Calculus of Variations, on a non-compact connected manifold. Using the Lax-Oleinik semigroup, we give a proof of the existence of weak KAM solutions, or viscosity solutions, for the associated Hamilton-Jacobi Equation. This proof works also in presence of symmetries. We also study the role of the amenability of the group of symmetries to understand when the several critical values that can be associated with the Hamiltonian coincide.

Abstract:
In this paper, we give a new proof of the classical KAM theorem on the persistence of an invariant quasi-periodic torus, whose frequency vector satisfies the Bruno-R\"ussmann condition, in real-analytic non-degenerate Hamiltonian systems close to integrable. The proof, which uses rational approximations instead of small divisors estimates, is an adaptation to the Hamiltonian setting of the method we introduced in a previous work for perturbations of constant vector fields on the torus.

Abstract:
We give an elementary proof of the analytic KAM theorem by reducing it to a Picard iteration of a PDE with quadratic nonlinearity, the so called Polchinski renormalization group equation studied in quantum field theory.

Abstract:
The purpose of this lecture is to describe the KAM theorem in its most basic form and to give a complete and detailed proof. This proof essentially follows the traditional lines laid out by the inventors of this theory, and the emphasis is more on the underlying ideas than on the sharpness of the arguments.

Abstract:
We prove an abstract KAM theorem adapted to space-multidimensional hamiltonian PDEs with regularizing nonlinearities. It applies in particular to the singular perturbation problem studied in the first part of this work.

Abstract:
The KAM iterative scheme turns out to be effective in many problems arising in perturbation theory. I propose an abstract version of the KAM theorem to gather these different results.

Abstract:
We give a new proof of the KAM theorem for analytic Hamiltonians. The proof is inspired by a quantum field theory formulation of the problem and is based on a renormalization group argument treating the small denominators inductively scale by scale. The crucial cancellations of resonances are shown to follow from the Ward identities expressing the translation invariance of the corresponding field theory.
