Speaker: Nguyen Tien Zung, Université de Toulouse

Abstract: The existence of action-angle variables is a fundamental result in dynamical systems, whose proofs in the literature are however rather tricky. In this talk, I want to show a conceptual geometric approach to this problem, which gives a simple easy-to-remember proof for the classical action-angle variables theorem (for integrable Hamiltonians on symplectic manifolds), and which also leads to many generalizations (integrable systems in generalized senses, systems on Dirac manifolds, action-angle variables near singularities, infinite-dimensional systems, etc.)
