Publisher: University of North Carolina at Wilmington
Number of pages: 61

Description:
These notes were developed as a supplement to a course on Differential Geometry at the advanced undergraduate, first year graduate level, which the author has taught for several years. There are many excellent texts in Differential Geometry but very few have an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics. It is the purpose of these notes to bridge some of these gaps and thus help the student get a more profound understanding of the concepts involved.

by - arXiv
Both dynamical systems and symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems and symplectic ideas come together.
