This chapter discusses an illustrative example, namely the properties of invariant probability measures and orbits on KAM tori (or more generally, on invariant Lagrangian graphs). This will prepare the ground for understanding the main ideas and techniques that will be developed in the following chapters, without several technicalities that might be confusing to a neophyte.

Keywords:   KAM tori, invariant Lagrangian graphs, orbits, invariant probability measures
