By Konstantinos Efstathiou

sleek notions and demanding instruments of classical mechanics are utilized in the learn of concrete examples that version bodily major molecular and atomic platforms. The parametric nature of those examples leads clearly to the examine of the foremost qualitative adjustments of such platforms (metamorphoses) because the parameters are assorted. The symmetries of those structures, discrete or non-stop, targeted or approximate, are used to simplify the matter via a few mathematical instruments and methods like normalization and relief. The ebook strikes steadily from discovering relative equilibria utilizing symmetry, to the Hamiltonian Hopf bifurcation and its relation to monodromy and, eventually, to generalizations of monodromy.
