Mathematical Colloquium, "A Brief History of Geometric Mechanics", Klas Modin (Chalmers and University of Gothenburg)

Title: A Brief History of Geometric Mechanics
In this talk I wish to give an overview of the tight connection between differential geometry and classical mechanics. I shall take a historical route, going from Newton and Euler, via Lagrange and Hamilton, Poincaré and the Prize of King Oscar II, to Arnold and the Riemannian description of hydrodynamics.
