The KAM Story:A Friendly Introduction to the Content, by H Scott Dumas

By H Scott Dumas

This is a semi-popular arithmetic booklet aimed toward a vast readership of mathematically literate scientists, in particular mathematicians and physicists who're now not specialists in classical mechanics or KAM idea, and scientific-minded readers. components of the ebook also needs to entice much less mathematically expert readers with an curiosity within the historical past or philosophy of science.

The scope of the e-book is extensive: it not just describes KAM idea in a few aspect, but in addition provides its historic context (thus exhibiting why it was once a “breakthrough”). additionally mentioned are functions of KAM conception (especially to celestial mechanics and statistical mechanics) and the elements of arithmetic and physics during which KAM conception is living (dynamical structures, classical mechanics, and Hamiltonian perturbation theory).

Although a couple of resources on KAM idea are actually to be had for specialists, this ebook makes an attempt to fill a long-standing hole at a extra descriptive point. It stands proud very truly from latest courses on KAM thought since it leads the reader via an obtainable account of the idea and locations it in its right context in arithmetic, physics, and the historical past of science.


  • Introduction
  • Minimum Mathematical Background
  • Leading as much as KAM: A cartoon of the History
  • KAM Theory
  • KAM in Context: Questions, effects, Significance
  • Other ends up in Hamiltonian Perturbation thought (HPT)
  • Physical Applications
  • Appendices:
    • Kolmogorov's 1954 Paper
    • Overview of Low-Dimensional Small Divisor Problems
    • East Meets West — Russians, Europeans, Americans
    • Guide to extra Reading
    • Selected Quotations
    • Glossary

Readership: Undergraduates, graduates, and researchers largely attracted to Hamiltonian perturbation concept, statistical mechanics, ergodic idea, Nekhoroshev idea, Arnold diffusion, nonlinear dynamics, dynamical platforms, chaos conception, classical mechanics, and the historical past of those subjects.

By David D. Nolte

the easiest components of physics are the final issues that our scholars ever see. those are the interesting new frontiers of nonlinear and intricate platforms which are on the leading edge of college study and are the root of many high-tech companies. subject matters akin to site visitors at the world-wide-web, the unfold of epidemics via globally-mobile populations, or the synchronization of worldwide economies are ruled by means of common ideas simply as profound as Newton's laws.
Nonetheless, the traditional college physics curriculum reserves each one of these issues for complex graduate research. justifications are given for this example: first, that the mathematical instruments had to comprehend those subject matters are past the ability set of undergraduate scholars, and moment, that
these are speciality subject matters with out universal topic and little overlap.

Introduction to trendy Dynamics dispels those myths. The constitution of this booklet combines the 3 major themes of contemporary dynamics - chaos idea, dynamics on advanced networks, and basic relativity - right into a coherent framework. through taking a geometrical view of physics, focusing on the time evolution of actual structures as trajectories via summary areas, those themes percentage a typical and straightforward mathematical language by which any pupil can achieve a unified actual intuition.
Given the growing to be value of advanced dynamical platforms in lots of parts of technology and know-how, this article presents scholars with an up to date beginning for his or her destiny careers.
