Introduction to the Theory of Infinite-Dimensional Dissipative Systems
by Constantin I. Chueshov
Publisher: ACTA 2002
Number of pages: 419
This book is an exhaustive introduction to the main ideas of infinite-dimensional dissipative dynamical systems. The author outlines a variety of interlaced tools applied in the study of nonlinear dynamical phenomena in distributed systems. The results presented have direct applications to many developing areas of physics, mechanical engineering and biology.

With a good background in nonlinear dynamics, chaos theory, and applications, the authors give a treatment of the basic principles of nonlinear dynamics in different fields. In addition, they show overlap with the traditional field of control theory.

This book addresses the following topics: Iterations and fixed points; bifurcations; conjugacy; space and time averages; the contraction fixed point theorem; Hutchinson's theorem and fractal images; hyperbolicity; and symbolic dynamics.

This article will take up the question of what underlies the quantum formalism, whether it can be derived from simpler mathematical structures, and if so, what physical properties a system must possess in order for the formalism to hold.

This book contains articles in several areas of dynamical systems that have recently experienced substantial progress. Some of the major surveys focus on symplectic geometry; smooth rigidity; hyperbolic, parabolic, and symbolic dynamics; etc.
