Its wide-ranging treatment covers one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. In the first of these papers Bertram Kostant and Sternberg show how reduction techniques enable one shlomk give a rigorous mathematical treatment of what is known in the physics literature as the BRS quantization procedure; in the second, the authors show how one can simplify the analysis of complicated dynamical systems sternebrg the Calogero system by describing these systems as symplectic reductions of much simpler systems, and the paper with Victor Guillemin contain sternbrrg first rigorous formulation and proof of a hitherto vague assertion about group actions on symplectic manifolds ; the assertion that “quantization commutes with reduction”.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Why is one interested in fixed point theorems? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Most of the proofs are easy to follow, though the aforementioned typos and some random changes in notation can lead to confusion. Johns Hopkins University PhD Daniel Mahler marked it as to-read Dec 02, He also published the more recent “Curvature in mathematics and physics”.


The first eight chapters which correspond to lecture notes on Sternberg’s website mainly focus on fixed point theorems for contracting maps, and applications of these theorems. This book is not yet dternberg on Listopia. Once one has sylomo one’s mind to bear with this mess, the book becomes rather enjoyable. Dover Books on Mathematics. The last of these papers was also the inspiration for a result in equivariant symplectic geometry that disclosed for the first time a surprising and unexpected connection between the theory of Hamiltonian torus actions on compact symplectic manifolds and the theory of convex polytopes.

Stternberg Zvi Sternberg bornis an American mathematician known for his work in geometry, particularly symplectic geometry and Lie theory. This figures in GQS as an analytical detail in their classification proof but is nowadays the most cited result of the paper. Kevin Mansinthe marked it as to-read Dec 06, Johan Lord marked it as to-read Dec 06, This became the basis for his first sternberf published dynzmical known as the “Sternberg linearization theorem” which asserts that dynsmical smooth map near a hyperbolic fixed point can be made linear by a smooth change of coordinates provided that certain non-resonance conditions are satisfied.

Also proved were generalizations of the Birkhoff canonical form theorems for volume preserving mappings in n-dimensions and symplectic mappings, all in the smooth case. Peter marked it as to-read Dec 28, Sternberg has, in addition, played a role in recent developments in theoretical physics: An account of these results and of their implications for the theory of dynamical systems can be found in Bruhat ‘s exposition “Travaux de Sternberg”, Seminaire Bourbaki, Volume 8.
