Abstract. In this paper a simple criterion to prove non-integrability of symplectic, perturbed twist mappings in $2n$ dimensions is developed for sufficiently small perturbations. In addition an upper bound for the number of isolating integrals the system can possess is provided. A criterion for the analytic continuation of isolated periodic orbits in case of a small nonzero perturbation of twist maps is found. The evaluation of their linear stability character by obtaining a simplfied expression of the eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix concludes the theoretical part. The theory is finally applied to a generalized standard map involving Jacobian elliptic functions.
