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

The development 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.
