## Abstract

The fundamental solution of a Hamiltonian system whose Hamiltonian H is positive definite and locally integrable is an entire function of exponential type. Its exponential type can be computed as the integral over $\sqrt{det H}$. We show that this formula remains true in the indefinite (Pontryagin space) situation, where the Hamiltonian is permitted to have finitely many inner singularities. As a consequence, we obtain a statement on non-cancellation of exponential growth for a class of entire matrix functions.
