4:30 pm:

I will cover M.V. Berry's classic paper:

Regular and Irregular Motion, AIP Conf. Proc. 46, 16 (1978).

I will try to cover as much of the first 90 pages :) as possible.

The subject is classical Hamiltonian chaos, the KAM theorem (which we will **not** prove), and some beautiful implications for solar system dynamics.
