When a leaf falls on a windy day, it drifts and tumbles, tossed every which way on the breeze. This is chaos in action. In Fly Me to the Moon , Edward Belbruno shows how to harness the same principle for low-fuel space travel--or, as he puts it, "surfing the gravitational field." Belbruno devised one of the most exciting concepts now being used... more...

Evolutionary equations are studied in abstract Banach spaces and in spaces of bounded number sequences. For linear and nonlinear difference equations, which are defined on finite-dimensional and infinite-dimensional tori, the problem of reducibility is solved, in particular, in neighborhoods of their invariant sets, and the basics for a theory of invariant... more...

Chaos theory deals with the description of motion (in a general sense) which cannot be predicted in the long term although produced by deterministic system, as well exemplified by meteorological phenomena. It directly comes from the Lunar theory a three-body problem and the difficulty encountered by astronomers to accurately predict the... more...
