Complex Dynamics and Renormalization
by Curtis T. McMullen
Publisher: Princeton University Press 1994
Number of pages: 219
Addressing researchers and graduate students in the active meeting ground of analysis, geometry, and dynamics, this book presents a study of renormalization of quadratic polynomials and a rapid introduction to techniques in complex dynamics. Its central concern is the structure of an infinitely renormalizable quadratic polynomial f(z)=z2+c.

This article will take up the question of what underlies the quantum formalism, whether it can be derived from simpler mathematical structures, and if so, what physical properties a system must possess in order for the formalism to hold.

Informal lecture notes intended for graduate students about the standard local theory of holomorphic foliations and vector fields. Though the material presented here is well-known some of the proofs differ slightly from the classical arguments.

This is a graduate textbook on classical and quantum chaos, applicable to problems of physics, chemistry and other sciences. It represents an attempt to formulate the subject as one of the cornerstones of the graduate physics curriculum of future.

This book contains articles in several areas of dynamical systems that have recently experienced substantial progress. Some of the major surveys focus on symplectic geometry; smooth rigidity; hyperbolic, parabolic, and symbolic dynamics; etc.
