**First Steps Towards a Symplectic Dynamics**

by Barney Bramham, Helmut Hofer

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 60

**Description**:

Both the field of dynamical systems and the field of symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with highly integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems questions and symplectic ideas come together in a nontrivial way.
