The book's calculations use tensor geometry and geometry of variation calculation. Invariance properties are associated with Noether's theorem. The methods of integration, as Jacobi's method, are deduced. The Maupertuis principle corresponding to the conservation of energy of material systems leads to quantum mechanics. We deduce the various spaces underlying the analytical mechanics which lead to the Poisson algebra and the symplectic geometry.
The aim of this book is to:
- To study the calculations of the geometry of the tensor and the geometry of the calculation of the variation
- Understanding the Maupertuis principle that corresponds to the energy conservation of material systems
- Define the invariance properties associated with the Noether theorem
- Talking about phase space, Liouville's theorem
- Identify small movements and different types of stabilities
Applied mathematicians and physicists who wish to obtain a rapid knowledge of the basics of analytical mechanics under a very geometric aspect. Physicists who are involved in statistical mechanics and use classical theorems of the space of phases in mechanics
