Introduction to Dynamical Systems Methods for Mission Design

EDITOR'S NOTE. This event was first announced by the School of Mathematics. For updates, check the original posting.

This workshop is an introduction to recent mathematical advances in Arnold diffusion that will enable the design of spacecraft orbits that will use significantly less fuel by taking advantage of natural gravitational forces in space. 

Workshop participants include mission design specialists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and mathematicians from Georgia Tech and Yeshiva University.

The workshop is part of a Strategic University Research Partnership grant awarded by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to School of Mathematics Professor Rafael de la Llave and Yeshiva University Professor Marian Gidea. The project's JPL principal investigator is Rodney L. Anderson.
