Some aspects of finite-dimensional Hamiltonian dynamics
These lectures touch upon two aspects of Hamiltonian mechanics. The first one (geometric) establishes fundamental role of symplectic geometry as the language of Hamiltonian mechanics. The second aspect (dynamical) exhibits the main problem in the domain, which is the interplay between regular and chaotic motion.
