Reviews

From the reviews: "This book contains the lectures given at the 3rd Helmholtz Institute for Supercomputational Physics summer school held in Potsdam in 2005. The purpose of this school was to present the basic theory on Hamiltonian Dynamics in general and Celestial Mechanics in particular ... . This book is an excellent introduction to those who wish to study the extrasolar planetary systems, since it provides all the basic theory of dynamics, relevant to this subject and a thorough presentation of the formation of planetary systems ... ."
