By Felix Schlenk

Symplectic geometry is the geometry underlying Hamiltonian dynamics, and symplectic mappings come up as time-1-maps of Hamiltonian flows. The stunning tension phenomena for symplectic mappings came upon within the final twenty years convey that sure issues cannot be performed by means of a symplectic mapping. for example, Gromov's well-known "non-squeezing'' theorem states that one can't map a ball right into a thinner cylinder by means of a symplectic embedding. the purpose of this e-book is to teach that yes different issues can be performed through symplectic mappings. this is often accomplished through quite a few ordinary and particular symplectic embedding structures, corresponding to "folding", "wrapping'', and "lifting''. those buildings are performed intimately and are used to resolve a few particular symplectic embedding difficulties.

The exposition is self-contained and addressed to scholars and researchers attracted to geometry or dynamics.

This Seminar started in Moscow in November 1943 and has persisted with out interruption as much as the current. we're satisfied that with this vol­ ume, Birkhiiuser has all started to submit papers of talks from the Seminar. It used to be, regrettably, tricky to prepare their e-book prior to 1990. seeing that 1990, lots of the talks have taken position at Rutgers college in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Simplex geometry is a subject generalizing geometry of the triangle and tetrahedron. the correct device for its learn is matrix conception, yet functions frequently contain fixing large platforms of linear equations or eigenvalue difficulties, and geometry will help in visualizing the behaviour of the matter.
