About this book

The present monograph gives a short and concise introduction to classical and quantum mechanics on two-point homogenous Riemannian spaces, with empahsis on spaces with constant curvature. Chapter 1-4 provide the basic notations from differential geometry for studying two-body dynamics in these spaces. Chapter 5 deals with the problem of finding explicitly invariant expressions for the two-body quantum Hamiltonian. Chapter 6 addresses one-body problems in a central potential. Chapter 7 studies the classical counterpart of the quantum system of chapter 5. Chapter 8 investigates some applications in the quantum realm, namely for the coulomb and oscillator potentials.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book has eight chapters and a bibliography list containing 215 references. It is written in a clear and straightforward way that makes it useful even for nonspecialists in the field. … In particular, the book contains interesting discussions of applications of the Poincaré section method to some problems in constant curvature spaces. … The book is a valuable complete source for many-body problems on two-point homogeneous spaces." (Alexei Tsygvintsev, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 f)
