Celestial encounters : the origins of chaos and stability by Florin Diacu( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celestial Encounters is for anyone who has ever wondered about the foundations of chaos. In 1888, the 34-year-old Henri Poincare submitted a paper that was to change the course of science, but not before it underwent significant changes itself. "The Three-Body Problem and the Equations of Dynamics" won a prize sponsored by King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway and the journal Acta Mathematica, but after accepting the prize, Poincare found a serious mistake in his work. While correcting it, he discovered the phenomenon of chaos. Starting with the story of Poincare's work, Florin Diacu and Philip Holmes trace the history of attempts to solve the problems of celestial mechanics first posed in Isaac Newton's Principia in 1686. In describing how mathematical rigor was brought to bear on one of our oldest fascinations--the motions of the heavens--they introduce the people whose ideas led to the flourishing field now called nonlinear dynamics. In presenting the modern theory of dynamical systems, the models underlying much of modern science are described pictorially, using the geometrical language invented by Poincare
Turbulence, coherent structures, dynamical systems, and symmetry by Philip Holmes( Book )

34 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces these developments and describes how they may be combined to create low-dimensional models of turbulence, resolving only by the coherent structures. This book will interest engineers, especially in the aerospace, chemical, civil, environmental, and geophysical areas, as well as physicists and applied mathematicians concerned with turbulence
Knots and links in three-dimensional flows by Robert W Ghrist( Book )

21 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The closed orbits of three-dimensional flows form knots and links. This book develops the tools - template theory and symbolic dynamics - needed for studying knotted orbits. This theory is applied to the problems of understanding local and global bifurcations, as well as the embedding data of orbits in Morse-smale, Smale, and integrable Hamiltonian flows. The necesssary background theory is sketched; however, some familiarity with low-dimensional topology and differential equations is assumed
New approaches to nonlinear problems in dynamics by Philip Holmes( Book )

19 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geometry, mechanics, and dynamics : volume in honor of the 60th birthday of J.E. Marsden by Paul K Newton( Book )

21 editions published between 1899 and 2005 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume aims to acknowledge J.E. Marsden's influence as a teacher, propagator of new ideas, and mentor of young talent. It presents both survey articles and research articles in the fields that represent the main themes of his work, including elesticity and analysis, fluid mechanics, dynamical systems theory, geometric mechanics, geometric control theory, and relativity and quantum mechanics. The common thread throughout is the use of geometric methods that serve to unify diverse disciplines and bring a wide variety of scientists and mathematicians together in a way that enhances dialogue and encourages cooperation. This book may serve as a guide to rapidly evolving areas as well as a resource both for students who want to work in one of these fields and practitioners who seek a broader view

Stable and random motions in dynamical systems: with special emphasis on celestial mechanics by Jürgen Moser( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, astronomers have been interested in the motions of the planets and in methods to calculate their orbits. Since Newton, mathematicians have been fascinated by the related N-body problem. They seek to find solutions to the equations of motion for N masspoints interacting with an inverse-square-law force and to determine whether there are quasi-periodic orbits or not. Attempts to answer such questions have led to the techniques of nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory. In this book, a classic work of modern applied mathematics, Jürgen Moser presents a succinct account of two pillars of the theory: stable and chaotic behavior. He discusses cases in which N-body motions are stable, covering topics such as Hamiltonian systems, the (Moser) twist theorem, and aspects of Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theory. He then explores chaotic orbits, exemplified in a restricted three-body problem, and describes the existence and importance of homoclinic points. This book is indispensable for mathematicians, physicists, and astronomers interested in the dynamics of few- and many-body systems and in fundamental ideas and methods for their analysis. After thirty years, Moser's lectures are still one of the best entrées to the fascinating worlds of order and chaos in dynamics

Chaos and fractals : the mathematics behind the computer graphics by Robert L Devaney( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The terms chaos and fractals have received widespread attention in recent years. The alluring computer graphics images associated with these terms have heightened interest among scientists in these ideas. This volume contains the introductory survey lectures delivered in the American Mathematical Society Short Course, Chaos and Fractals: The Mathematics Behind the Computer Graphics, on August 6-7, 1988, given in conjunction with the AMS Centennial Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. In his overview, Robert L. Devaney introduces such key topics as hyperbolicity, the period doubling route to chaos, chaotic dynamics, symbolic dynamics and the horseshoe, and the appearance of fractals as the chaotic set for a dynamical system. Linda Keen and Bodil Branner discuss the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets associated to the complex quadratic family z -> z² + c. Kathleen T. Alligood, James A. Yorke, and Philip J. Holmes discuss some of these topics in higher dimensional settings, including the Smale horseshoe and strange attractors. Jenny Harrison and Michael F. Barnsley give an overview of fractal geometry and its applications. -- from dust jacket

Introduction to Hamiltonian dynamical systems and the n-body problem by Kenneth R Meyer( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text grew out of graduate level courses in mathematics, engineering and physics given at several universities. The courses took students who had some background in differential equations and lead them through a systematic grounding in the theory of Hamiltonian mechanics from a dynamical systems point of view. Topics covered include a detailed discussion of linear Hamiltonian systems, an introduction to variational calculus and the Maslov index, the basics of the symplectic group, an introduction to reduction, applications of Poincaré's continuation to periodic solutions, the use of normal forms, applications of fixed point theorems and KAM theory. There is a special chapter devoted to finding symmetric periodic solutions by calculus of variations methods. The main examples treated in this text are the N-body problem and various specialized problems like the restricted three-body problem. The theory of the N-body problem is used to illustrate the general theory. Some of the topics covered are the classical integrals and reduction, central configurations, the existence of periodic solutions by continuation and variational methods, stability and instability of the Lagrange triangular point. Ken Meyer is an emeritus professor at the University of Cincinnati, Glen Hall is an associate professor at Boston University, and Dan Offin is a professor at Queen's University
