WHATEVER opinions may be felt as to the desirability of University Presses competing with private firms in swelling the already too large flood of school geometries or issuing cram books for compulsory Greek examinations, there can only be one opinion as to the series of standard treatises on higher mathematics emanating at the present time from Cambridge. In a country which, in its lack of national interest in higher scientific research, particularly mathematical research, stands far behind… 
A review on extension of Lagrangian-Hamiltonian mechanics
This paper presents a brief review on Lagrangian-Hamiltonian Mechanics and deals with the several developments and extensions in this area, which have been based upon the principle of D'Alambert or
Integrals of Motion
. The properties of conservative dynamical systems of two or more degrees of freedom are re­ viewed. The transition from integrable to ergodic systems is described. Nonintegrability is due to the
Nontrivial vacua in higher-derivative gravitation.
For general fourth-order theories, described by actions which are general functions of the scalar curvature, the Ricci tensor and the full Riemann tensor, it is shown that the higher-derivative theories may have multiple stable vacua.
Applications and extensions of the Liouville theorem on constants of motion
We give an elementary proof of the Liouville theorem, which allows us to obtain n constants of motion in addition to n given constants of motion in involution, for a mechanical system with n degrees
Towards an analytical theory of the third-body problem for highly elliptical orbits
When dealing with satellites orbiting a central body on a highly elliptical orbit, it is necessary to consider the effect of gravitational perturbations due to external bodies. Indeed, these
A Generalization of the Poincar\'e-Cartan Integral Invariant for a Nonlinear Nonholonomic Dynamical System
Based on the d'Alembert-Lagrange-Poincar\'{e} variational principle, we formulate general equations of motion for mechanical systems subject to nonlinear nonholonomic constraints, that do not involve
Instantaneous impulses in multibody dynamics
This paper considers instantaneous impulses in multibody dynamics. Instantaneous impulses may act on the multibody from its exterior or they may appear in its interior as a consequence of two of its
A First Look at the Second Metamorphosis of Science
Over the past century the character and structure of science has been going through a second process of fundamental change which has been brought about by two classes of discoveries, which shatter widely held beliefs about the authors' ability to extract information about nature only through the use of mathematical modeling and analysis, together with physical experiments.
