Hamiltonian Structures and Generating Families by Sergio Benenti

By Sergio Benenti

This booklet is an more suitable model of an past Russian variation. along with thorough revisions, extra emphasis was once wear reordering the themes based on a category-theoretical view. this permits the mathematical effects to be acknowledged, proved, and understood in a far more uncomplicated and stylish way.

From the experiences of the Russian edition:

"The major accessory is shifted to the application . . . in geometrical optics, thermostatics and regulate conception, and never to the Hamiltonian mechanics basically. . . . To make the publication rather self-contained, complete info of uncomplicated definitions and all proofs are integrated. during this method, the vast majority of the textual content may be learn with no the prerequisite of a direction in geometry. the wonderful choice of examples illustrates the fairly not easy and hugely summary mathematical idea and its hidden difficulties. . . . The e-book can upward thrust actual curiosity for experts . . . .  The . . . booklet is an important enter within the smooth symplectic geometry and its applications."

Aircraft Stories: Decentering the Object in Technoscience by John Law

By John Law

In Aircraft Stories famous sociologist of technoscience John legislations tells “stories” a couple of British try to construct an army aircraft—the TSR2. The intertwining of those tales demonstrates the ways that specific technological tasks will be understood in a global of complicated contexts.
Law works to disenchanted the binary among the modernist suggestion of information, matters, and items as having situated and urban essences and the postmodernist inspiration that each one is fragmented and centerless. The constitution and content material of Aircraft Stories mirror Law’s competition that wisdom, matters, and—particularly— gadgets are “fractionally coherent”: that's, they're drawn jointly with no unavoidably being situated. In learning the method of this actual aircraft’s layout, development, and eventual cancellation, legislations develops a number metaphors to explain either its fractional personality and the methods its a variety of elements have interaction with one another. supplying a number of insights into the way in which we theorize the operating of platforms, he explores the overlaps among singularity and multiplicity and divulges wealthy new that means in such thoughts as oscillation, interference, fractionality, and rhizomatic networks.
The method and insights of Aircraft Stories might be beneficial to scholars in technology and expertise stories and should interact others who're drawn to the ways in which modern paradigms have restricted our skill to determine gadgets of their real complexity.
