This volume deals with the dynamics of area-preserving surface diffeomorphisms. In dimension 2, some specific mathematical tools are available. In addition, the authors present several approaches and some applications. In particular, they try to show how the geometrical theory of dynamical systems, the group theory, the hydrodynamics and the plane topology interact.
