Abstract. We construct analytic symplectomorphisms of the cylinder or the sphere with zero or exactly two periodic points and which are not conjugated to a rotation. In the case of the cylinder, we show that these symplectomorphisms can be chosen ergodic or to the opposite with local emergence of maximal order.  In particular, this disproves a conjecture of Birkhoff (1941) and solves a problem of Herman (1998).
