Abstract: We consider a system of linear differential equations, $ \dot x = A(\omega \cdot t)x$, parametrized by a point $ \omega \in {{\mathbf{T}}^2}$, the $ 2$-torus, where $ (\omega ,t) \to \omega \cdot t$ denotes an irrational rotation flow on $ {{\mathbf{T}}^2}$. We show that if the rotation number of this flow is well approximable by rationals, then residually many equations (with respect to the $ {C^k}$-topology on a certain class of matrix valued maps $ A(\omega )$ on $ {{\mathbf{T}}^2}$) exhibit recurrent-proximal behavior. Also the order of differentiability $ k$ of the class in which this generic result holds is related to the "speed" of approximation by rationals.
