Celebrated mathematician Shlomo Sternberg, a pioneer in the field of dynamical systems, created this modern one-semester introduction to the. Shlomo Sternberg’s book Dynamical Systems is that excellent introduction which many of us sought when we were first-year graduate students, who became.

Also, sternbery a sequel to this paper written jointly with Victor Guillemin and Daniel Quillenhe extended this classification to a larger class of pseudogroups: This became the basis for his first well-known published result known as the “Sternberg linearization theorem” which sholmo that a 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.

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. Peter marked it as to-read Dec 28, The difficulty ranges from elementary calculus to serious real analysis, so it is manageable.

Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. This page was last edited on 16 Mayat Based on the first eight chapters, I would have given the book four stars, but as a whole, I cannot bring myself dtnamical award more than three.

Sternberg’s contributions to symplectic geometry and Lie theory have also included a number of basic textbooks on these subjects, among them the three graduate level texts with Victor Guillemin: Among his contributions to this subject are his paper with Bertram Kostant on BRS cohomology, his paper with David Kazhdan and Bertram Kostant on dynamical systems of Calogero type and his paper with Victor Guillemin on the “Quantization commutes with reduction” conjecture.

What I particularly liked about the book is that it uses and encourages an experimental use of mathematics, that is, doing numerical experiments, plotting graphs of functions to find fixed points or periodic points and then, after the experiment, supply a proof to confirm the observations.
