The book is useful for courses in dynamical systems and chaos, nonlinear dynamics, etc., for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering. Discover the. Stellar dynamics is the branch of astrophysics which describes in a statistical way the collective motions of stars subject to their mutual essential difference from celestial mechanics is that each star contributes more or less equally to the total gravitational field, whereas in celestial mechanics the pull of a massive body dominates any satellite orbits.

A dynamical system is a manifold M called the phase (or state) space endowed with a family of smooth evolution functions Φ t that for any element of t ∈ T, the time, map a point of the phase space back into the phase space. The notion of smoothness changes with applications and the type of manifold. There are several choices for the set T is taken to be the reals, the dynamical. This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical .

Abstract. The motion of a system of N particles in d dimensions is described in Statistical Mechanics by means of a Hamiltonian system of 2Nd differential equations, which generates the group of transformations of the phase space. The object of the investigation is the time evolution of probability measures on the phase space determined by this group of by: Numerous examples are presented carefully along with the ideas underlying the most important results.

The last part of the book deals with the dynamical systems of statistical mechanics, and in particular with various kinetic equations. This book is compulsory reading for all mathematicians working in this field, or wanting to learn about it.

Cornfeld, Ya. Sinai (auth.), Ya. Sinai (eds. Dynamical systems and statistical mechanics have been developing in close interaction during the past decade, and the papers in this book attest to the productiveness of this interaction.

The first paper in the collection contains a new result in the theory of quantum chaos, a burgeoning line of inquiry that combines mathematics and physics and. Statistical Mechanics explores the physical properties of matter based on the dynamic behavior of its microscopic constituents.

After a historical introduction, this book presents chapters about thermodynamics, ensemble theory, simple gases theory, Ideal Bose and Fermi systems, statistical mechanics of interacting systems, phase transitions, and computer simulations.

Written by a team of international experts, Extremes and Recurrence in Dynamical Systems presents a unique point of view on the mathematical theory of extremes and on its applications in the natural and social ing an interdisciplinary approach to new concepts in pure and applied mathematical research, the book skillfully combines the areas of statistical mechanics, probability.

This book is an introduction to the applications in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and also to the use of techniques in statistical mechanics important for an understanding of the chaotic behaviour of fluid systems.

The fundamental concepts of dynamical systems theory are reviewed and simple examples are given. DYNAMICAL AND STATISTICAL EXPLANATION A recurrent debate in the foundations of statistical mechanics is on the relative im-portance of dynamical versus statistical arguments.

Abstract. A statistical-mechanical formalism of chaos based on the geometry of invariant sets in phase space is discussed to show that chaotic dynamical systems can be treated by a formalism analogous to that of thermodynamic systems if one takes a relevant coarse-grained quantity, but their statistical laws are quite different from those of thermodynamic systems.
