Description

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Geometric and Variational Methods in Celestial Mechanics" workshop in Oaxaca, from October 4 to October 09, 2020.


Determining qualitative properties of the long term behavior of the planets of the Solar system, and now also of extra Solar systems, is the oldest question in Dynamical Systems. The simplest model of the Solar system is the N-body problem: N bodies moving under the influence of the Newtonian gravitational force. Even if it has been studied from more than two centuries and despite the outstanding recent progress, the N-body problem is far from being well understood.

The goal of this conference is to bring together different mathematicians who study Celestial Mechanics models from different perspectives and with different techniques to achieve a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the N-body problem.


The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
