The papers during this quantity are an outgrowth of the lectures and casual discussions that came about in the course of the workshop on "The Geometry of Hamiltonian platforms" which used to be held at MSRl from June five to sixteen, 1989. It used to be, in a few feel, the final significant occasion of the year-long application on Symplectic Geometry and Mechanics. The emphasis of the entire talks used to be on Hamiltonian dynamics and its courting to a number of elements of symplectic geometry and topology, mechanics, and dynamical structures normally. The organizers of the convention have been R. Devaney (co-chairman), H. Flaschka (co-chairman), ok. Meyer, and T. Ratiu. the complete assembly used to be equipped round mini-courses of 5 lectures each one and a chain of 2 expository lectures. the 1st of the mini-courses used to be given via A. T. Fomenko, who provided the paintings of his crew at Moscow college at the class of integrable platforms. the second one mini­ path was once given by way of J. Marsden of UC Berkeley, who spoke approximately a number of functions of symplectic and Poisson relief to difficulties in balance, general kinds, and symmetric Hamiltonian bifurcation conception. ultimately, the 2 expository talks got by way of A. Fathi of the collage of Florida who focused on the hyperlinks among symplectic geometry, dynamical structures, and Teichmiiller theory.
