A. Guillot's notes aim to describe differential equations in the complex domain, motivated by the evolution of N particles moving on the plane subject to the influence of a magnetic field. Guillot studies such differential equations using different geometric structures on complex curves (in the sense of W. Thurston) in order to find isochronicity conditions.
R. Montgomery's notes deal with a version of the planar Newtonian three-body equation. Namely, he investigates the problem of whether every free homotopy class is realized by a periodic geodesic. The solution involves geometry, dynamical systems, and the McGehee blow-up. A novelty of the approach is the use of energy-balance in order to motivate the McGehee transformation.
A. Pedroza's notes provide a brief introduction to Lagrangian Floer homology and its relation to the solution of the Arnol'd conjecture on the minimal number of non-degenerate fixed points of a Hamiltonian diffeomorphism.
