Scattering monodromy in integrable Hamiltonian systems

Abstract: The notion of Hamiltonian monodromy was introduced by Duistermaat, who defined this invariant as an obstruction to the existence of global action-angle coordinates in integrable Hamiltonian systems. Since then, non-trivial monodromy was observed in various specific examples of integrable systems, such as the spherical pendulum, the Lagrange top, and the hydrogen atom in crossed fields.
In this talk, we shall first discuss the classical notion of Hamiltonian monodromy and then focus on the so-called scattering monodromy, which generalises Hamiltonian monodromy to the case of non-compact systems; specifically, to systems that are both integrable and scattering. We present a new general description of this scattering invariant and compute it for the spatial Euler two-centre problem.
This talk is based on joint works with H.W. Broer, H.R. Dullin, K. Efstathiou and H. Waalkens.
