Dedicated to the late Juan Carlos Simo, this volume contains the proceedings of a workshop held at the Fields Institute in October 1993. The articles focus on current algorithms for the integration of mechanical systems, from systems in celestial mechanics to coupled rigid bodies to fluid mechanics. The scope of the articles ranges from symplectic integration methods to energy-momentum methods and related themes.

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


Graduate students and research mathematicians, physicists, astrophysicists, and engineers interested in mechanics of particles and systems.
