Talk on recent developments in studying the gravitational n-body Problem.
Preliminaries: interest in Astronomy and Mathematics, particularly geometry. Understanding https://youtu.be/xdIjYBtnvZU (Feynman's Lecture on the Kepler problem) is helpful.
Overview: The first half offers a historical overview of the subject while the second half focuses on Hamiltonian Dynamics and relative equilibria with a somewhat surprising historical twist.
