This volume presents new research in classical Hamiltonian and quantum systems from the Workshop on Conservative Systems and Quantum Chaos held during The Fields Institute Program Year on Dynamical Systems and Bifurcation Theory in October 1992 (Waterloo, Canada). The workshop was organized so that there were presentations that formed a bridge between classical and quantum mechanical systems. Four of these papers appear in this collection, with the remaining six papers concentrating on classical Hamiltonian dynamics.


  • Includes applications ranging from numerical exploration of a coupled mechanical system to a Hamiltonian approach to the problem of spatio-temporal chaos in biological models from population genetics and ecology.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).


Advanced graduate students and mathematics professionals interested in Hamiltonian dynamics and quantum chaos.
