The last of these papers was systemx the inspiration for a result in equivariant symplectic geometry that disclosed for the first time a surprising and unexpected connection between the theory of Syztems torus actions on compact symplectic manifolds and the theory of convex polytopes.

Shlomo Sternberg, Dynamical systems

Group theory and physics by S. Sternbwrg three of these papers involve various aspects of the theory of symplectic reduction. In the first of these papers Bertram Kostant and Sternberg show how reduction techniques enable one to give a rigorous mathematical treatment of what is known in the physics literature as the BRS quantization procedure; in the second, the authors dynamidal how one can simplify the analysis of complicated dynamical systems like the Calogero system by describing these systems as symplectic reductions of much simpler systems, and the paper with Victor Guillemin contain the first rigorous formulation and proof of a hitherto vague assertion about group sternberb on symplectic manifolds ; the assertion that “quantization commutes with reduction”.


Lawrence Lifshitz marked it as to-read Sywtems 08, The book is very efficient in the sense that it progresses to the main results without much ado.

Many of Sternberg’s other papers have been concerned with Lie group actions on symplectic manifolds. He also published the more recent “Curvature in mathematics and physics”. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Paperbackpages. Jones marked it as to-read Aug 17, The number of typos is unbelievable. Lee Corbin added it Feb 25, From chapter 9 on, the chapters seem hastily slammed together, there is much less cohesion than in the first part of the book, and the motivation for what is done is much less clear. Francesco marked it as to-read May 10, Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Marco Spadini rated it really liked it Jun 25, What I particularly liked about the book is that it uses and encourages an experimental use of mathematics, that is, doing numerical experiments, plotting graphs of functions to find fixed points or periodic points and then, after the experiment, supply a proof to confirm the observations.

He has written several papers with Yuval Ne’eman on the role of supersymmetry in elementary particle physics in which they explore from this perspective the Dynamiccal mechanismthe method of spontaneous symmetry breaking and a unified approach to the theory of quarks and leptons.


Peter marked it as to-read Dec 28, Nitin CR added it Nov 16, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Sternberg’s contributions to symplectic geometry and Lie theory have also included a number of basic textbooks on these subjects, among them the three graduate level texts with Victor Guillemin: Once one has set one’s mind to bear with this mess, the book becomes rather enjoyable.

Dec 17, Woflmao rated it liked it Shelves: Among his contributions to this subject are his paper with Bertram Kostant on BRS cohomology, his paper with David Kazhdan and Bertram Kostant on dynamical systems of Calogero type and his paper with Victor Guillemin on the “Quantization commutes with reduction” conjecture.

Alexander marked it as to-read Mar 03, No trivia or quizzes yet. Branko Nikovski rated it it was amazing Jun 17, One important by-product dynamucal the Ahlomo paper was the ” integrability of characteristics” theorem for over-determined systems of partial differential equations.

This figures in GQS as an analytical detail in their classification proof but is nowadays the most cited result of the paper. Tom Fitz added it Feb 17, Steernberg added it Nov 06,
