Integrable Hamiltonian Systems: Geometry, Topology, Classification is essentially a research monograph and survey of recent work, covering results on the subject through the late 1990s, and quite extensive. It is terse and concise (despite its length), covering over 350 research papers, as well as recent results of the authors.

The book assumes a fairly deep familiarity with background material, and is probably meant to serve as a reference for those engaged in the field.


Michael Pearson is Director of Programs and Services of the MAA.
