Order and Chaos in Dynamical Astronomy (Astronomy and by George Contopoulos

By George Contopoulos

This publication is likely one of the first to supply a normal assessment of order and chaos in dynamical astronomy. The development of the idea of chaos has a profound effect on galactic dynamics. It has even invaded celestial mechanics, in view that chaos was once present in the sun method which long ago used to be regarded as a prototype of order. The ebook presents a unifying method of those issues from an writer who has spent greater than 50 years of analysis within the box. the 1st half treats order and chaos usually. the opposite elements care for order and chaos in galaxies and with different purposes in dynamical astronomy, starting from celestial mechanics to normal relativity and cosmology.
