Adiabatic Phases in Classical Mechanics
Part of the Progress in Mathematical Physics book series (PMP, volume 36)
What could be a classical analog of the quantum geometric phase? An obvious candidate, which is even called a phase, is the phase of harmonic motion:
$$ x(t) = A cos(\omega t + \phi _0 ). $$
