## Abstract

In this paper, we study the reducibility problem for a class of analytic almost periodic linear Hamiltonian systems where

$$\begin{aligned} \frac{dx}{dt} = J[{A}+\varepsilon {Q}(t)]x \end{aligned}$$

*A*is a symmetric matrix,*J*is an anti-symmetric symplectic matrix,*Q*(*t*) is an analytic almost periodic symmetric matrix with respect to*t*, and \(\varepsilon \) is a sufficiently small parameter. It is also assumed that*JA*has possible multiple eigenvalues and the basic frequencies of*Q*satisfy the non-resonance conditions. It is shown that, under some non-resonant conditions, some non-degeneracy conditions and for most sufficiently small \(\varepsilon \) , the Hamiltonian system can be reduced to a constant coefficients Hamiltonian system by means of an almost periodic symplectic change of variables with the same basic frequencies as*Q*(*t*).## Keywords
