REPRESENTATION OF VOLUME PRESERVING MAPS INDUCED BY SOLENOIDAL VECTOR FIELDS
A general representation of finite volume preserving maps induced by solenoidal vector fields in periodic cylinders is derived. An important special case is the area preserving Hamiltonian maps which include the standard mapping. Applications to computational problems in plasma physics are briefly indicated.
