Homework Help: Classical phase space flow exact solution

  1. Apr 14, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    if i wanted to obtain an "exact" solution for flow s(t|k) k=(q,p) with a hamiltonian

    H(k) = x(ak)

    use the fact aJa = 0 where J is the poisson matrix

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I hate obscure proofs... i like actual question so i'm lost on what the definition of exact solution for the flow is

    do i need to prove that s is sympletic and therefore is canonical?

    any sort of idea would help
