Colloquium Zabrodsky lecture 1: Paul Seidel (MIT)- The symplectic topologist as a dynamicist


Title:
The symplectic topologist as a dynamicist
Abstract:
The deveolpment of symplectic topology was motivated by Hamiltonian mechanics. It has been particularly successful in addressing one specific aspect, namely fixed points and periodic points of discrete-time Hamiltonian systems. I will explain how such applications work, both in older and more recent examples.
