Abstract: For nearly integrable and Tonelli system

$\displaystyle H_{\epsilon }=H_0(p)+\epsilon H_1(q,p,t). \quad (q,p,t)\in \mathbb{T}^n\times \mathbb{R}^n\times \mathbb{T},$

we give the perturbation estimates of weak KAM solution $ u_{\epsilon }$ with respect to parameter $ \epsilon $ and prove the stability of the Mather set $ \tilde {\mathcal {M}}_\epsilon $, Aubry set $ \tilde {\mathcal {A}}_\epsilon $, Mañé set $ \tilde {\mathcal {N}}_\epsilon $ and even the backward (forward) calibrated curves under the perturbation.
