Dynamics of Foliations, Groups and Pseudogroups - Monografie Matematyczne 64 (Paperback)Pawel Walczak (author)
- We can order this
This book deals with the dynamics of general systems such as foliations, groups and pseudogroups, systems which are closely related via the notion of holonomy. It concentrates on notions and results related to different ways of measuring complexity of systems under consideration. More precisely, it deals with different types of growth, entropies and dimensions of limiting objects. Problems related to the topics covered are provided throughout the book.

"The classical theory of dynamical systems has been greatly generalized to the rich context of foliations and actions of groups and pseudogroups on spaces. The book under review expounds on this theory in considerable detail....
Much of the material in this book is pertinent to applied mathematics.... Experts in control systems also recognize foliation theory as a cognate subject of some interest.... With the phenomenal interaction between pure and applied mathematics over recent decades, this book should be of considerable interest to many application-oriented mathematicians."
