This EMS volume, the first edition of which was published as Dynamical Systems II, EMS 2, sets out to familiarize the reader to the fundamental ideas and results of modern ergodic theory and its applications to dynamical systems and statistical mechanics. The exposition starts from the basic of the subject, introducing ergodicity, mixing and entropy. The ergodic theory of smooth dynamical systems is treated. Numerous examples are presented carefully along with the ideas underlying the most important results. Moreover, the book deals with the dynamical systems of statistical mechanics, and with various kinetic equations. For this second enlarged and revised edition, published as Mathematical Physics I, EMS 100, two new contributions on ergodic theory of flows on homogeneous manifolds and on methods of algebraic geometry in the theory of interval exchange transformations were added. This book is compulsory reading for all mathematicians working in this field, or wanting to learn about it.
Wherein lays the strength of a man? Is it in the width of his shoulders, his biceps, his height or IQ? This book reveals a strength that comes only from within-one characterized by an indefinable trust in God. This strength is proven through trust and a loving relationship developed with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This kind of strength outweighs the physical and is sustainable through the spirit, and is demonstrated in the life of Kirby Edwards. Read and experience the strength of Kirby and his love for God through his struggles. "Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work." - William Arthur Ward
Throughout history, prominent theologians and church leaders have made sense of the Bible through the interpretive lenses of ancient Greek philosophy. As a result, our traditional beliefs often portray God as an all-controlling deity that frowns on emotion and subjects women to male authority. Throughout this book, the author explores the origins of these theological traditions, and seeks to restore a vision of God as depicted in the New Testament -- a vision of God as Love.
