Abstract. The two main stability results for nearly-integrable Hamiltonian systems
Nekhoroshev theorem, concerning exponential lower bounds for
the stability time (effective stability),
and KAM theorem, concerning the preservation of a majority of the nonresonant
invariant tori (perpetual stability).
To stress the relationship between both theorems, a common approach is given
to their proof, consisting of bringing the system to a normal form constructed
through the Lie series method.
The estimates obtained for the size of the remainder rely on bounds of the
allowing to get the ``optimal'' stability exponent in Nekhoroshev theorem
for quasiconvex systems.
On the other hand, a direct and complete proof of the isoenergetic KAM theorem
Moreover, a modification of the proof leads to the notion of nearly-invariant
torus, which constitutes a bridge between KAM and Nekhoroshev theorems.
