“Dynamical Systems” by Shlomo Sternberg

Kevin Mansinthe marked it as to-read Dec 06, The first eight chapters which correspond to lecture notes on Sternberg’s website mainly focus on fixed point theorems for contracting maps, and applications of these theorems.


In the first of these papers Bertram Kostant and Sternberg show how reduction techniques enable one to give a rigorous mathematical treatment of what is systemx in the physics literature as the BRS quantization procedure; in the second, the authors show how one can simplify the analysis of complicated dynamical systems like the Calogero system by describing these systems as symplectic reductions of much simpler systems, and the paper with Victor Guillemin contain the first rigorous formulation and proof of a hitherto vague assertion about group actions on symplectic manifolds ; the assertion that “quantization commutes with reduction”.

From chapter 9 on, the chapters seem hastily slammed together, there is much less cohesion than in the first part of the book, and the motivation for what is done is much less clear. Among the honors he sternbrrg been accorded as recognition for these achievements are a Guggenheim fellowship inelection to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences inelection to the National Academy of Sciences in and election to the American Philosophical Society in International Press of Boston.

What I particularly liked about the book is that it uses and encourages an experimental use of mathematics, that is, doing numerical experiments, plotting graphs of functions to find fixed points or periodic points and then, after the experiment, supply sternbefg proof to confirm the observations.

The difficulty ranges from elementary calculus to serious real analysis, so it is manageable.
