Symplectic Homogenization


Let $H(q,p)$ be a Hamiltonian on $T^*T^n$. We show that the sequence $H_{k}(q,p)=H(kq,p)$ converges for the $\gamma$ topology defined by the author, to $\overline{H}(p)$. This is extended to the case where only some of the variables are homogenized, that is the sequence $H(kx,y,q,p)$ where the limit is of the type ${\overline H}(y,q,p)$ and thus yields an ``effective Hamiltonian''. We give here the proof of the convergence, and the first properties of the homogenization operator, and give some immediate consequences for solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equations, construction of quasi-states, etc. We also prove that the function $\overline H$ coincides with Mather's $\alpha$ function which gives a new proof of its symplectic invariance proved by P. Bernard.
