About what?

Hamiltonian systems provide an elegant way to describe the evolution equations of certain mechanical systems. The corresponding flow mappings can be shown to be symplectic and usually possess conserved quantities like momentum or energy. In this talk we will introduce the basic concepts, first for Euclidean space and then extend them to finite dimensional manifolds.
