## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there,

My objective is to study Hamiltonian systems, integrable and non integrable systems, where there will be chaos, etc. I have a general idea of everything.. the destroyed tori, the symplectic structure of hamilton's equations, etc. But nothing is very clear to me! And the most frustrating part of all this is that everything I want to know seems to be described in rich details in this book: V.I. Arnold - Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics. But I don't think it's written in any terrestrial language.

Is there a other way to approach this subject? Don't get me wrong, I love math but to master this book's content I would need a whole year, if not more, probably.

Diego
