Branko Nikovski rated it it was amazing Jun 17, The book is very efficient in the sense that it progresses to the main results without much ado.

Dover Books on Mathematics. This became the basis for his first well-known published result known as the “Sternberg linearization theorem” which asserts that a smooth map near a hyperbolic fixed point can be made linear by a smooth change of coordinates provided that certain non-resonance conditions are satisfied.

Dynamical Systems

In the first of these papers Bertram Kostant and Sternberg show how reduction techniques enable one to give a rigorous mathematical treatment of what is known in the physics literature as the BRS quantization procedure; in the second, the authors show how one can simplify the analysis of complicated dynamical systems like the Calogero system by describing these systems as symplectic reductions of much simpler systems, and the paper with Victor Guillemin contain the first rigorous formulation and proof of a hitherto vague assertion about group actions on shlojo manifolds ; the assertion that “quantization commutes with reduction”.

The number of typos is unbelievable. The last of these papers was also the inspiration for a result in equivariant symplectic geometry that disclosed for the first time a surprising and unexpected connection between the theory of Hamiltonian torus actions on compact symplectic manifolds and the theory of convex polytopes.

What I particularly liked about the book is that it uses and encourages an dtnamical use of mathematics, that shloo, doing numerical experiments, plotting graphs of functions to find fixed points or periodic points and then, after the experiment, supply a proof to confirm the observations.

Based on the first eight chapters, I would have given the book four stars, but as a whole, I cannot bring myself to award more than three. dnyamical
