## Abstract

In this paper we contribute to the generic theory of Hamiltonians by proving that there is a \(C^2\)-residual \({\mathcal {R}}\) in the set of \(C^2\) Hamiltonians on a closed symplectic manifold \(M\), such that, for any \(H\in {\mathcal {R}}\), there is a full measure subset of energies \(e\) in \(H(M)\) such that the Hamiltonian level \((H,e)\) is topologically mixing; moreover these level sets are homoclinic classes.
