Geometric mechanics borders pure and applied mathematics and incorporates such disciplines as differential geometry, Hamiltonian mechanics and integrable systems. The source of this collection is the summer school on Geometric Mechanics and Symmetry organized by James Montaldi and Tudor Ratiu. Written with significant input from the participants at the conference, these lecture notes are geared towards fulfilling the needs of graduate students through their attention to detail.
