This booklet is predicated on a suite of lectures given to a combined viewers of physicists and mathematicians. the need to be intelligible to either teams is the underlying preoccupation of the writer. Physicists these days are fairly drawn to part transitions. the common scenario is process of interacting debris shows an abrupt swap of behaviour at a undeniable temperature, even though the neighborhood forces among the debris are considered gentle services of temperature.

This fact becomes obvious when one thinks of Lx (and LIP,x) as the rate of change along a curve in the direction of X (respectively along the image of the curve). 26) The connection between vector fields and differential operators also allows the basis for Yq(M) induced by 0 c(q) to be written symbolically as a;oqi' or Oi: Let ei be the basis vectors of IRm and <1>: q ...... Li eiqi E IRm. To any function 9 E COO(M) on this chart is assigned the mapping 9 0 <1> - 1 : IRm ...... 23) the derivation O/Oqi is assigned to the Lie derivative with respect to the inverse image of ei under 0C of the curves corresponding to 0 l(q)ei are just the ei-axes in q.

For large X the vector field becomes so strong that every point except the origin is sent to infinity in a finite time. 6) 1. 4) states that trajectories that are near neighbors can not suddenly be separated. 5J according to which points can not diverge faster than exponentially in time if the derivative of X is uniformly bounded. 2. Becauseu(tl + t 2,q(0» = U(t2' U(tb q(O»,its existence is equivalent to the possibility ofletting V = M and '1 = 00.

9). -+ (ql, ... , qm, 8. 20). 9. If lI>(q) = (0,0, ... 20). Conversely if q E aM, then on every chart, lI>(q) = (0, x 2 , ... , x m). By changing the chart so that II> -+ II> (0, X 2, ... , Xm), q is mapped to the origin. 2 Tangent Spaces A smooth surface may be approximated at a point by the tangent plane. The generalization of this concept is the tangent space. 2) is a linear transformation ~n -+ ~m. Since in general manifolds do not possess a linear structure, we must 20 2 Analysis on Manifolds construct a linear space in order to define the derivative of a mapping of manifolds M 1 ~ M 2.
