This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fields of dynamical systems and geometric mechanics in a single volume. The exposition is concise and clear, and is supplemented with a number of illuminating examples and exercises. The text offers an ample amount of flexibility: core sections from both parts of the text may be reasonably digested in a single-semester introductory graduate-level course, or the text may be covered in more detail over a two-semester course. The text also discusses several new results that have yet to appear in any other textbook, and each chapter concludes with an application that can serve as a springboard project for further investigation, projects, or in-class discussion.This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fields of dynamical systems and geometric mechanics in a single volume.
