MS27 Part 2 of 2 - Celestial Mechanics

MS27 Part 1 of 2

Celestial Mechanics is not just another application of the theory of differential equations. The idea of a differential equation indeed crystallized in the minds of Huygens, Hooke, Newton, Leibniz and other famous authors who shared the same obsession, that of understanding the motion of the celestial bodies. Later, the complexity of the qualitative behaviors was again described in the same framework, in Poincaré's book, Méthodes Nouvelles de la Mécanique Céleste. Our session wants to continue this old tradition of developping the theory of differential equations in the context of the problems raised by the dynamics of the celestial bodies.
