Abstract:

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in our ability to draw non-obvious conclusions about the world around us. I will emphasize the part geometry plays in some examples from satellite motion planning and population dynamics. Along the way we will introduce symplectic geometry, a branch of mathematics and physics where 2-dimensional area is the fundamental concept.
