Higher-order averaging, formal series and numerical integration III: error bounds
In earlier works, it has been shown how formal series like those used nowadays to investigate the properties of numerical integrators may be used to construct high- order averaged systems or formal first integrals of Hamiltonian problems. With the new approach the averaged system (or the formal first integral) may be written down immediately in terms of (i) suitable basis functions and (ii) scalar coefficients that are computed via simple recursions. In  , we show how the coefficients/basis functions approach may be used advantageously to derive exponentially small error bounds for averaged systems and approximate first integrals.
