A Mathematician Looks at Voting  Donald G Saari Celestial Mechanics: Dedicated to Donald Saari for his 60th Birthday  Alain Chenciner, Richard Cushman, Clark Robinson and Zhihong Jeff Xia  This book contains selected papers from the AMSIMSSIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Hamiltonian Systems and Celestial Mechanics held in Seattle in June 1995. The symbiotic relationship of these two topics creates a natural combination for a conference on dynamics. Topics covered include twist maps, the AubreyMather theory, Arnold diffusion, qualitative and topological studies of systems, and variational methods, as well as specific topics such as Melnikov's procedure and the singularity properties of particular systems. As one of the few books that addresses both Hamiltonian systems and celestial mechanics, this volume offers emphasis on new issues and unsolved problems. Many of the papers give new results, yet the editors purposely included some exploratory papers based on numerical computations, a section on unsolved problems, and papers that pose conjectures while developing what is known. Features:
Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians, and physicists interested in dynamical systems, Hamiltonian systems, celestial mechanics, and/or mathematical astronomy. Table of Contents
