This sets the stage for the introduction and study of symmetric spaces, which form the central part of the book.

Symplectic Geometry and Analytical Mechanics P. It is important that the book has again become available for a general audience. The mathematical community has long been in need of a book on symmetric spaces. For Lie groups, a significant amount of analysis either begins with or reduces to analysis on homogeneous spaces, frequently on symmetric spaces.
