Abelian integrals related to Morse polynomials and perturbations of plane hamiltonian vector fields
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 49 (1999) no. 2, p. 611-652

Let 𝒜 be the real vector space of Abelian integrals

I(h)={Hh}R(x,y)dxdy,h[0,h˜]

where H(x,y)=(x 2 +y 2 )/2+... is a fixed real polynomial, R(x,y) is an arbitrary real polynomial and {Hh}, h[0,h ˜], is the interior of the oval of H which surrounds the origin and tends to it as h0. We prove that if H(x,y) is a semiweighted homogeneous polynomial with only Morse critical points, then 𝒜 is a free finitely generated module over the ring of real polynomials [h], and compute its rank. We find the generators of 𝒜 in the case when H is an arbitrary cubic polynomial. Finally we apply this in the study of degree n polynomial perturbations of quadratic reversible Hamiltonian vector fields with one center and one saddle points. We prove that, if the Poincaré-Pontryagin function is not identically zero, then the exact upper bound for the number of limit cycles on the finite plane is n-1.

Soit 𝒜 l’espace vectoriel des intégrales abéliennes

I(h)={Hh}R(x,y)dxdy,h[0,h˜]

H(x,y)=(x 2 +y 2 )/2+... est un polynôme réel fixé, R(x,y) est un polynôme réel quelconque, et {Hh} est l’intérieur de l’ovale de H qui contient l’origine et tend vers lui quand h0. Nous démontrons que si H(x,y) est un polynôme quasi-homogène avec des points critiques de Morse, alors 𝒜 est un [h]-module libre de type fini, dont nous calculons le rang. Nous trouvons les générateurs de 𝒜 dans le cas où H est de degré trois. Ce résultat est ensuite appliqué à l’étude des perturbations polynomiales de degré n des champs de vecteurs hamiltoniens quadratiques réversibles, avec un centre et un point selle. Nous démontrons que, si la fonction de Poincaré-Pontryagin n’est pas identiquement nulle, alors la borne supérieure exacte du nombre de cycles limites dans tout domaine compact du plan est égale à n-1.
