Elliptic isles in families of area-preserving maps

  • P. DUARTE (a1)


We prove that every one-parameter family of area-preserving maps unfolding a homoclinic tangency has a sequence of parameter intervals, approaching the bifurcation parameter, where the dynamics exhibits wild hyperbolic sets accumulated by elliptic isles. This is a parametric conservative analogue of a famous theorem of Newhouse on the abundance of wild hyperbolic sets.
