Perturbations of geodesic flows on surfaces of constant negative curvature and their mixing properties. (English) Zbl 0585.58022
One parameter analytic Hamiltonian perturbations of the geodesic flow on a surface of constant negative curvature are considered and necessary and sufficient conditions for the canonical equivalence of the perturbed and nonperturbed flows are found.
