Speaker: Huagui Duan, Nankai University, China

Abstract: The closed geodesic problem is a classical topic in dynamical systems, differential geometry and variational analysis, which can be chased back to H. Poincaré. Closed geodesics can be regarded as critical points of the energy functional with positive energy. And the Morse indices of closed geodesics and their iterates have played an important role in the study of closed geodesics. In this talk, I will give a survey in these related fields, together with some recent joint works with Yiming Long and Wei Wang.
