  • Celestial Encounters
    Celestial Encounters (English, Paperback) Florin Diacu, Philip Holmes

    Presenting the story of Poincare's work, this book traces the history of attempts to solve the problems of celestial mechanics posed in Isaac Newton's "Principia" in 1686. It introduces the people whose ideas led to the field called nonlinear dynamics.

  • Megadisasters
    Megadisasters (English, Hardback) Florin Diacu

    Can we predict cataclysmic disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or stock market crashes? This book asks why catastrophes such as these catch us by surprise, and reveals the history and groundbreaking science behind efforts to forecast major disasters and minimize their destruction.

  • Relative Equilibria of the Curved N-Body Problem
    Relative Equilibria of the Curved N-Body Problem (English, Paperback) Florin Diacu

    We will shed some light on the dynamics of N point masses that move in spaces of non-zero constant curvature according to an attraction law that naturally extends classical Newtonian gravitation beyond the flat (Euclidean) space.

  • Classical and Celestial Mechanics
    Classical and Celestial Mechanics (English, Hardback) Hildeberto Cabral

    Brings together a number of lectures given between 1993 and 1999 as part of a series hosted by the Federal University of Pernambuco, in which researchers came to Recife, Brazil, to lecture on classical or celestial mechanics. This work is aimed at graduate students and researchers interested in Hamiltonian dynamics and celestial mechanics.

  • Megadisasters
    Megadisasters (Hardback) Florin Diacu

    Our best technology seems helpless in preventing such 'megadisasters' as Hurricane Katrina. Together with earthquakes, climate change, stock market crashes, these are complex systems hard to predict. Florin Diacu recounts the heroic efforts to understand them, our limited progress so far, and stories from those caught up in them.

  • An Introduction to Differential Equations
    An Introduction to Differential Equations (English, Hardback) Florin Diacu

    In this text, Diacu (U. of Victoria) reconciles the split between the traditional approach to teaching calculus (and consequently that of differential equations) and a more intuitive one, commonly known as "reform." He eliminates the nonessential and heavy-going and includes the newer, more qualita
