Abstract

The paper considers the rotation number for a family of linear nonautonomous Hamiltonian systems and its relation with the exponential dichotomy concept. We propose numerical techniques to compute the rotation number and we employ them to infer when a given system enjoys or not an exponential dichotomy. Comparisons with QR-based techniques for exponential dichotomy will give new insights on the structure of the spectrum for the one-dimensional quasi-periodic Schrödinger operator. Experiments on the two dimensional Schrödinger equation will be presented as well.
