## Applied Hamiltonian Systems

Many problems of classical and modern physics can be formulated as Hamiltonian systems. The speakers in this minisymposium will present four different problems in conservative mechanics along with four different solution approches. They will discuss applications to celestial mechanics, quantum mechanics, DNA supercoiling, and shadowing properties of geodesics.
Organizer: Kenneth R. Meyer, University of Cincinnati
