About the book

The book entitled Discretization in Geometry and Dynamical Systems will present the state of the art of the discrete methods and techniques which appear in geometry and dynamics. Top level researchers will be invited to send their papers. With this aim in mind, the book should be structured on six main parts. At first the classical discrete Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics will be described. Fractional discrete Euler-Lagrange equations and their applications will be presented. Following chapters should deal with smooth and discrete curvatures, differential operators on polyhedral surfaces, applications to computer graphics and computational mechanics. Finally, we should also cover an important topic, namely, the numerical methods for discrete dynamical systems.
The book will be useful to students, postdocs and researchers interested in dealing with several interesting aspects of discrete behaviours in geometry and dynamics.
