By Professor Dr. Walter Dittrich, Dr. Martin Reuter (auth.)

Graduate scholars who are looking to familiarize yourself with complicated computational options in classical and quantum dynamics will locate right here either the basics of a regular path and a close remedy of the time-dependent oscillator, Chern-Simons mechanics, the Maslov anomaly and the Berry part, including many labored examples in the course of the textual content. This moment version has been enlarged by way of a brand new bankruptcy on topological levels in planar electrodynamics and a dialogue of the Aharonov-Bohm impression.
