Overview

This book offers a modern introduction to the Hamiltonian theory of dynamical systems, presenting a unified treatment of all types of dynamical systems, i.e., finite, lattice, and field. Particular attention is paid to nonlinear systems that have more than one Hamiltonian formulation in a single coordinate system. As this property is closely related to integrability, this book presents an algebraic theory of integrable.
