Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics #0001: Chaos in Classical and Quantum Mechanics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Describes the chaos apparent in simple mechanical systems with the goal of elucidating the connections between classical and quantum mechanics. It develops the relevant ideas of the last two decades via geometric intuition rather than algebraic manipulation. The historical and cultural background against which these scientific developments have occurred is depicted, and realistic examples are discussed in detail. This book enables entry-level graduate students to tackle fresh problems in this rich field.

Book News Annotation:

Describes the apparent chaos in the long time-interval motions of simple mechanical systems for an audience at the level of beginning graduate students, developing the relevant ideas with the help of geometric intuition rather than algebraic manipulation. The main focus is on seeking the connection between classical and quantum mechanics.
