Abstract. The gravitational ionization of a Keplerian binary system via
normally incident periodic gravitational radiation of definite
helicity is discussed. The periodic orbits of the planar tidal
equation are investigated on the basis of degenerate continuation theory.
The relevance of the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theory to the
question of gravitational ionization is elucidated, and it is conjectured that
the process of ionization is closely related to the Arnold diffusion of the
