Abstract: At the beginning of the 20th century, G.D. Birkhoff called the N body problem of celestial mechanics the most celebrated problem in mathematics. Although this perspective has changed after an explosive expansion of mathematics in the past decades, numerous important problems remain. I will discuss a selected number of these problems.
The talk will be accessible to graduate students.
