Unformatted text preview: 1 CDS 140b: Project Ideas (Hamiltonian Dynamics) The following is a nonexhaustive list of possible project ideas for CDS140b. The idea is that you choose a topic during one of the guest lectures, and that you write a short summary of it, demonstrating the insight into the subject matter. You are also free to suggest a topic of your own choosing, provided there is a clear link with dynamical systems theory and CDS140b. To keep everything within bounds, I suggest a limit of four pages for the paper, though you are allowed to go over that if you think it necessary. The due date for the project paper is Tuesday, March 10 . It is strongly suggested that you write the paper in L A T E Xand submit it via email ( jv@caltech.edu ). Given the fact that the deadline for the project is only four weeks away, let me know as soon as you choose a particular topic. Project Ideas. Symplectic/Poisson integrators . As discussed in class, conventional integration schemes often fail to preserve the Poisson or symplectic structure of the system, leading to qual itatively inaccurate behaviour over long time scales. Over the past two decades, newitatively inaccurate behaviour over long time scales....
