The “Weak Painlevé” property and integrability of two-dimensional Hamiltonian systems

  • Basile Grammaticos
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 189)


The integrability of dynamical systems, described by nonlinear differential equations, is associated to the singularity structure of the solutions in the complex-time plane. In this work, the usual Painlevé property, i.e., existence of poles as the only movable singularities, is somewhat extended for the case of two-dimensional hamiltonian systems. Integrability in this case is compatible with the presence of algebraic branch points of a specific nature.
