1998 IMACS Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra

Special Session:
Dynamical Systems and Mechanics

Session Organizers:

Victor Edneral, , Moscow State University, Russia
Nikolay Vassiliev,, , Institute for Theoretical Astronomy, St. Petersburg, Russia

This session is intended to discuss computer algebra methods in view of investigating and constructing solutions of Dynamical Systems and corresponding Mechanical problems. Since nonlinear dynamical systems, generally, can not be exactly solved, the role of computer algebra preanalysis for the numerical methods has a special interest. From this point of view creation of approximating solutions of the systems in symbolic form is one of power methods to investigate the behavior of solutions.
