A co-publication of the AMS and Fields Institute

This volume presents articles originating from invited talks
at an exciting international conference held at The Fields Institute
in Toronto celebrating the sixtieth birthday of the renowned
mathematician, Vladimir Arnold. Experts from the world
over—including several from “Arnold's
school”—gave illuminating talks and lively poster
sessions. The presentations focussed on Arnold's main areas of
interest: singularity theory, the theory of curves, symmetry groups,
dynamical systems, mechanics, and related areas of mathematics.

The book begins with notes of three lectures by V. Arnold given in
the framework of the Institute's Distinguished Lecturer program. The
topics of the lectures are:

- From Hilbert's Superposition Problem to Dynamical Systems
- Symplectization, Complexification, and Mathematical Trinities
- Topological Problems in Wave Propagation Theory and Topological Economy Principle in Algebraic Geometry

Arnold's three articles include insightful comments on Russian and Western mathematics and science. Complementing the first is Jurgen Moser's “Recollections”, concerning some of the history of KAM theory.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in singularity theory, the theory of curves, symmetry groups, dynamical systems, and mechanics; physicists and engineers interested in astronomy, mechanics, and bifurcation theory.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The articles appearing in this volume illustrate diversity in mathematics stemming from a rather limited number of fundamental problems originally in Arnold's research … communicates esteem and warm affection for Arnold by his colleagues and former students.

-- CMS Notes

Provides an excellent record of the mathematical content of the conference, as well as an introduction to the mind of a great mathematician … these articles provide a wonderful autobiographical retrospective together with a wealth of mathematical ideas. They are a joy to read.
