### Long time..no see :-)

Ok...so this is a post after 9 months...

Well, a lot has happened in the interim period ...my research focus has taken new and unxpected directions...

This past semester, I was trying to learn the some graduate level dynamical systems theory...with focus on chaos. Topics I covered (in varying detail) were:

Some perturbation/averaging stuff

Local Bifurcations

Symbolic dynamics and chaos...Smale horseshoe!!

Hamiltonian systems...lots of it. integrability..nearly integrable systems...intro to KAM

Melnikov theory (in N-dimensions also :-( )

Some Chaotic transport stuff

Read some papers about low fuel trajectories in space missions

Right now reading about twist maps and generally, transport in Hamiltonian systems

Also, thinking about a writing a proposal to apply transport theory for calculation of impact ejecta...
