Abstract

We give a mechanical example concerning the fact that some regularity is necessary in KAM theory. We consider the model given by the vertical bouncing motion of a ball on a periodically moving plate. Denoting with f the motion of the plate, some variants of Moser invariant curve theorem apply if f' is small in norm C^5 and every motion has bounded velocity. This is not possible if the function f is only C^1 . Indeed we construct a function f ∈ C^1 with arbitrary small derivative in norm C^0 for which a motion with unbounded velocity exists.
