Title: On periodic orbits of balls in a potential
The seminar will take place at Ångström Laboratory, but it is also possible to attend on Zoom. Passcode: 478793.
Abstract: Given a potential, most orbits of balls rolling in that potential are not periodic. I will explain that, nonetheless, on every level at which the potential is sufficiently convex, there exists a point at which you can release a ball so that it will return to you.
