## A Sketch on the History of Dynamics

**17th Century****1666-1696**- Invention of Calculus - Newton & Leibniz- Major Developments in Calculus and Classical Mechanics
**18th Century**- Analytical Works of Planetary Motion
**19th Century****1890's**Poincare works on Geometric Approach**20th Century****Birkhoff****Kolmogrov****Arnol'd****Moser****Lorenz****Ruelle****Takens****May****Feigenbaum****Winfree****Mandelbrot**- Ordinary Differential Equations

the study of changes with respect to only

**one variable**, mostly**time** - Partial Differential Equations

the study of changes with respect to

**two or more variables**, mostly**time & space**
