Abstract

A recent result of J. Mather [1] about the existence of quasi-periodic orbits for twist maps is derived from an appropriately modified version of G. D. Birkhoff's classical theorem concerning periodic orbits. A proof of Birkhoff's theorem is given using a simplified geometric version of Mather's arguments. Additional properties of Mather's invariant sets are discussed.
