We study the splitting of invariant manifolds of whiskered tori with two frequencies in nearlyintegrable
Hamiltonian systems, such that the hyperbolic part is given by a pendulum. We
consider a 2-dimensional torus with a fast frequency vector $\omega/v\epsilon$, with $\epsilon=(1,\Omega)$ where $\Omega$ is an irrational number of constant type, i.e. a number whose continued fraction has bounded
entries. Applying the Poincar´e–Melnikov method, we find exponentially small lower bounds for
the maximal splitting distance between the stable and unstable invariant manifolds associated to
the invariant torus, and we show that these bounds depend strongly on the arithmetic properties
of the frequencies.
