Index Theory for Symplectic Matrix Paths with Applications I
Speaker: Huagui Duan, Nankai University, visiting Penn State
Abstract: In these two lectures, I shall give an introduction of the Maslov-type index theory for symplectic matrix paths and its iteration theory with applications to the multiplicity and stability of periodic orbits for Hamiltonian systems and closed geodesics on compact manifolds.
