Geometry from Dynamics, Classical and Quantum by José F. Cariñena,Alberto Ibort,Giuseppe Marmo,Giuseppe

By José F. Cariñena,Alberto Ibort,Giuseppe Marmo,Giuseppe Morandi

This ebook describes, by utilizing straightforward concepts, how a few geometrical constructions common at the present time in lots of components of physics, like symplectic, Poisson, Lagrangian, Hermitian, etc., emerge from dynamics. it really is assumed that what might be accessed in genuine stories while learning a given process is simply its dynamical behavior that is defined by utilizing a family members of variables ("observables" of the system). The publication departs from the main that ''dynamics is first'' after which attempts to reply to in what experience the only real dynamics determines the geometrical buildings that experience proved so necessary to explain the dynamics in such a lot of very important cases. during this vein it's proven that the majority of the geometrical buildings which are utilized in the traditional shows of classical dynamics (Jacobi, Poisson, symplectic, Hamiltonian, Lagrangian) are decided, even though often no longer uniquely, by way of the dynamics on my own. an identical software is entire for the geometrical constructions appropriate to explain quantum dynamics. eventually, it really is proven that extra homes that let the categorical description of the dynamics of sure dynamical platforms, like integrability and great integrability, are deeply with regards to the former improvement and should be covered in the last a part of the booklet. The mathematical framework used to provide the former application is saved to an straight forward level throughout the textual content, indicating the place extra complex notions could be had to continue additional. A kinfolk of suitable examples is mentioned at size and the mandatory rules from geometry are elaborated alongside the textual content. even though no attempt is made to offer an ''all-inclusive'' advent to differential geometry as many different books exist already out there doing precisely that. However, the improvement of the former software, regarded as the posing and answer of a generalized inverse challenge for geometry, ends up in new methods of pondering and bearing on probably the most conspicuous geometrical buildings showing in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics.
