SUMMARY

Dynamical Systems IV Symplectic Geometry and its Applications by V.I.Arnol'd, B.A.Dubrovin, A.B.Givental', A.A.Kirillov, I.M.Krichever, and S.P.Novikov From the reviews of the first edition: "... In general the articles in this book are well written in a style that enables one to grasp the ideas. The actual style is a readable mix of the important results, outlines of proofs and complete proofs when it does not take too long together with readable explanations of what is going on. Also very useful are the large lists of references which are important not only for their mathematical content but also because the references given also contain articles in the Soviet literature which may not be familiar or possibly accessible to readers." New Zealand Math.Society Newsletter 1991 "... Here, as well as elsewhere in this Encyclopaedia, a wealth of material is displayed for us, too much to even indicate in a review. ... Your reviewer was very impressed by the contents of both volumes (EMS 2 and 4), recommending them without any restriction. As far as he could judge, most presentations seem fairly complete and, moreover, they are usually written by the experts in the field. ..." Medelingen van het Wiskundig genootshap 1992 !
