The main aim of this book is to develop the methods of Global Analysis and of Stochastic Analysis such that their combination allows one to have a more or less common treatment for areas of mathematical physics that traditionally are considered as quite distant from each other and requiring different methods of investigation. Among those areas we mention classical mechanics on non-linear configuration spaces, some problems of statistical and quantum physics, hydrodynamics, etc. The idea, yielding the unification of these topics, is based on the use of a geometrically invariant form of Newton's second law and its analogs (stochastic, set-valued, infinite-dimensional, etc.) as a fundamental equation of motion.
