Introduction. Frequency Map Analysis is a numerical method based on refined Fourier techniques which provides a clear representation of the global dynamics of many multi-dimensional systems, and which is particularly adapted for systems of 3-degrees of freedom and more. This method relies heavily on the possibility of making accurate quasiperiodic approximations of quasiperiodic signal given in a numerical way.
In these lectures, we will describe the basis of the frequency analysis method. This is intended to be of practical use for any researcher who is willing to explore and use the frequency map analysis methods for the understanding of the dynamics of Hamiltonian systems.
Applications to several examples will be provided, in Solar System, or Particle Accelerator Dynamics.
1. Quasi periodic approximation
2. Convergence of the quasi periodic approximation, asymptotic expansion
3. Numerical examples
4. Frequency Map Analysis
5. Application of Frequency Map Analysis in Solar System and Particle Accelerator dynamics
