We construct an example of a Hamiltonian flow $f^t$ on a $4$-dimensional smooth manifold $\mathcal{M}$ which after being restricted to an energy surface $\mathcal{M}_e$ demonstrates essential coexistence of regular and chaotic dynamics, that is, there is an open and dense $f^t$-invariant subset $U\subset\mathcal{M}_e$ such that the restriction $f^t|U$ has non-zero Lyapunov exponents in all directions (except the direction of the flow) and is a Bernoulli flow while on the boundary $\partial U$, which has positive volume, all Lyapunov exponents of the system are zero.
This is a continuation of the talk in previous week.
