Abstract : This work is concerned with the preservation of invariants and of volume-forms by numerical methods which can be expanded into B-series. The situation we consider here is that of a split vector field where each sub-field either has the common invariant I or is divergence free. We derive algebraic conditions on the coefficients of the B-series for it either to preserve I or to preserve the volume for generic vector fields and interpret them for additive Runge-Kutta methods. Comparing the two sets of conditions then enables us to state some non-existence results. For a more restrictive class of problems, where the system is partitionned into several components, we nevertheless obtain simplified conditions and show that they can be solved.
