This volume clearly reflects Ricardo Mane's legacy, his contribution to mathematics and the diversity of his mathematical intersts. It contains fifteen refereed research papers on thems including Hamiltonian and Lagrangian dynamics, growth rate of the number of geodesics on a compact manifold, one dimensional complex and real dynamics, and bifurcations and singular cycles. This book also contains two famous sets of notes by Ricardo Mane. One is the seminal paper on Lagrangian dynamics that he had prepared for the conference; the other is on the genericity of zero exponents area preserving diffeomorphisms on surfaces when non Anosov.
This book will be of particular interest to researchers and graduate students in mathematics, mechanics and mathematical physics.
