The goal of these notes is to give a reasonahly com plete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to spe cific problems, including stability calculations. Historical ly, the subject had its origins in the works of Poincare 1] around 1892 and was extensively discussed by Andronov and Witt 1] and their coworkers starting...




Designed for courses in advanced calculus and introductory real analysis, Elementary Classical Analysis strikes a careful balance between pure and applied mathematics with an emphasis on specific techniques important to classical analysis without vector calculus or complex analysis. The book includes detailed coverage of the foundations of the real number system and focuses primarily on analysis...

Lawrence Sirovich will turn seventy on March 1, 2003. Larry's academic life of over 45 years at the Courant Institute, Brown University, Rockefeller University and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine has touched many peo ple and several disciplines, from fluid dynamics to brain theory. His con tributions to the kinetic theory of gases, methods of applied mathematics, theoretical fluid dynamics,...




A presentation of some of the basic ideas of fluid mechanics in a mathematically attractive manner. The text illustrates the physical background and motivation for some constructions used in recent mathematical and numerical work on the Navier Stokes equations and on hyperbolic systems, so as to interest students in this at once beautiful and difficult subject. This third edition incorporates a...




Undoubtedly [the book] will be for years the standard reference on symplectic geometry, analytical mechanics and symplectic methods in mathematical physics.




Symmetry has always played an important role in mechanics, from fundamental formulations of basic principles to concrete applications. The theme of the book is to develop the basic theory and applications of mechanics with an emphasis on the role of symmetry. In recent times, the interest in mechanics, and in symmetry techniques in particular, has accelerated because of developments in dynamical...




Mathematics is playing an ever more important role in the physical and biological sciences, provoking a blurring of boundaries between scientific disciplines and a resurgence of interest in the modern as weil as the clas sical techniques of applied mathematics. This renewal of interest, bothin research and teaching, has led to the establishment of the series: Texts in Applied Mathematics (TAM)....





* The invited papers in this volume are written in honor of Alan Weinstein, one of the world s foremost geometers * Contributions cover a broad range of topics in symplectic and differential geometry, Lie theory, mechanics, and related fields * Intended for graduate students and working mathematicians, this text is a distillation of prominent research and an indication of future trends...




This advancedlevel study approaches mathematical foundations of threedimensional elasticity using modern differential geometry and functional analysis. It is directed to mathematicians, engineers and physicists who wish to see this classical subject in a modern setting with examples of newer mathematical contributions. Prerequisites include a solid background in advanced calculus and the...




Designed for courses in advanced calculus and introductory real analysis, Elementary Classical Analysis strikes a careful balance between pure and applied mathematics with an emphasis on specific techniques important to classical analysis without vector calculus or complex analysis. Intended for students of engineering and physical science as well as of pure mathematics.




The goal of this text is to help students learn to use calculus intelligently for solving a wide variety of mathematical and physical problems. This book is an outgrowth of our teaching of calculus at Berkeley, and the present edition incorporates many improvements based on our use of the first edition. We list below some of the key features of the book. Examples and Exercises The exercise sets...




The purpose of this book is to provide core material in nonlinear analysis for mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and mathematical biologists. The main goal is to provide a working knowledge of manifolds, dynamical systems, tensors, and differential forms. Some applications to Hamiltonian mechanics, fluid me chanics, electromagnetism, plasma dynamics and control thcory arc given in Chapter 8,...

This volume provides a detailed account of the theory of symplectic reduction by stages, along with numerous illustrations of the theory. It gives special emphasis to group extensions, including a detailed discussion of the Euclidean group, the oscillator group, the BottVirasoro group and other groups of matrices. The volume also provides ample background theory on symplectic reduction and...




The first edition of this book was originally published in 1985 under the ti tle "Probabilistic Properties of Deterministic Systems. " In the intervening years, interest in socalled "chaotic" systems has continued unabated but with a more thoughtful and sober eye toward applications, as befits a ma turing field. This interest in the serious usage of the concepts and techniques of nonlinear...
