A dynamical system is called isochronous if it features in its phase space an open, fully-dimensional region where all its solutions are periodic in all its degrees of freedom with the same, fixed period. Recently a simple transformation has been introduced, applicable to quite a large class of dynamical systems, that yields autonomous systems which are isochronous. This justifies the notion that isochronous systems are not rare. In this book the procedure to manufacture isochronous systems is reviewed, and many examples of such systems are provided. Examples include many-body problems characterized by Newtonian equations of motion in spaces of one or more dimensions, Hamiltonian systems, and also nonlinear evolution equations (PDEs). The book shall be of interest to students and researchers working on dynamical systems, including integrable and nonintegrable models, with a finite or infinite number of degrees of freedom. It might be used as a basic textbook, or as backup material for an undergraduate or graduate course.

Band 2 des vierteiligen Lehrbuchs behandelt weitere Materialien und Systeme, mit denen sich die Nanostrukturforschung aktuell befasst und die für die Nanotechnologie relevant sind. Als ausgewiesener Experte gibt Uwe Hartmann einen hervorragenden Gesamtüberblick über die weiche kondensierte Materie inklusive der Materie biologischen Ursprungs und grundlegende Nanobausteine wie etwa DNA, supramolekulare Strukturen, Kohlenstoffallotrope oder auch Cluster. Das Werk wendet sich an Studierende der Physik, Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften, sowohl begleitend als auch ergänzend zur Vorlesung.
