Tricks of the Trade: Relating and Deriving Solvable and Integrable Dynamical Systems

  • Francesco Calogero
Part of the CRM Series in Mathematical Physics book series (CRM)


A heuristic/pedagogical presentation of various tricks that can be used to relate different solvable and integrable dynamical systems to each other, hence also to derive new ones from known ones. Several examples are exhibited.
