Book Description

:The author of this volume defines a diffusion flow for a variational problem lacking completeness related to the geometry of a contact form a a and a vector field u in its kernel. He analyzes the ends of the flow lines and finds them to be of two types: one involving periodic orbits of the Reeb (Hamiltonian) vector field x, and the other where asymptotes occur. In the most general case these turn out to be periodic motions for x up to quantic jumps of a very special type along u. He shows that the mathematical results and the physical interpretation fit and provide new points of view useful in the foundations of quantum mechanics.
