 Amazon.com: Books: Structure of Dynamical Systems (Progress in Mathematics) (Site not responding. Last check: 20071107) 
  The aim of the book is to treat all three basic theories of physics, namely, classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics from the same perspective, that of symplectic geometry, thus showing the unifying power of the symplectic geometric approach. 
  In Chapter 3 a coherent symplectic description of Galilean and relativistic mechanics is given, culminating in the classification of elementary particles (relativistic and nonrelativistic, with or without spin, with or without mass). 
  In Chapter 4 statistical mechanics is put into symplectic form, finishing with a symplectic description of the kinetic theory of gases and the computation of specific heats.
