Book Description

June 10, 1994 0387977538 978-0387977539
The subjects treated here are part of an active and rapidly growing field of research that touches on the foundations of physics and chemistry. Specifically, the book presents, in as simple and coherent a manner as possible, the basic mechanisms that determine the dynamical evolution of both classical and quantum systems in sufficient generality to include nonlinear phenomena. The book begins with a discussion of Noether's Theorem, integrability, KAM theory, and a definition of chaotic behavior; it continues with a detailed discussion of area-preserving maps, integrable quantum systems, spectral properties, path integrals, and periodically driven systems; and concludes by showing how to apply the ideas to stochastic systems. Appendices fill in much of the necessary mathematical background. Based on courses given at Universities in California, Texas, and China, the book will be useful both as a text and as a reference. The presentation is complete, and there are extensive references to the current research literature. Problems at the ends of the chapters will help students clarify their understanding of the concepts.
