The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

We consider integrable Hamiltonian systems in a general setting of invariant submanifolds which need not be compact. This is the case a global Kepler system, non-autonomous integrable Hamiltonian systems and systems with time-dependent parameters.
