A variety of correlation functions computed over a microcanonical ensemble for the Hénon–Heiles system are investigated. We find the general trend is that of a gradual change to some form of decaying behavior as the motion becomes predominantly chaotic. The decay of a mode energy correlation function indicates a time scale for intramolecular energy redistribution.
