Lee Corbin added it Feb 25, He also published the more recent “Curvature in mathematics and physics”. In the first of these papers Bertram Kostant and Sternberg show how reduction techniques enable one to give a rigorous mathematical treatment of what is known in the physics literature as the BRS quantization procedure; in the second, the authors show how one can simplify the analysis of complicated dynamical systems like the Calogero system by describing these systems as symplectic reductions of much simpler systems, and the paper with Victor Guillemin contain the first rigorous formulation and proof of a hitherto vague assertion about group actions on symplectic manifolds ; the assertion that “quantization commutes with reduction”.

Shlomo Zvi Sternberg bornis an American mathematician known for his work in geometry, particularly symplectic geometry and Lie theory. Its wide-ranging treatment covers one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains.

This figures in GQS as an analytical detail in their classification proof but is nowadays the most cited result of the paper. Also, in a sequel to this paper written jointly with Victor Guillemin and Daniel Quillenhe extended this classification to a larger class of pseudogroups: Thanks for telling us about the problem.

This became the basis for his first well-known published result known as the “Sternberg linearization theorem” which asserts that a smooth map near a hyperbolic fixed point can be made linear by a smooth change of coordinates provided that certain non-resonance conditions are satisfied.

stsrnberg This book is not yet featured on Listopia. From chapter 9 on, the chapters seem hastily slammed together, there is much less cohesion than in the first part of the book, and the motivation for what is done is much less clear.
