Dynamics of (globular) star clusters, galaxies and galactic nuclei;
galaxies in the young universe. Study of the effects of rotation, mass
segregation, primordial binaries and central massive objects on the
evolution of dense stellar systems. Using Direct N-body Simulations,
anisotropic gaseous models, direct solutions of the Fokker-Planck
equation and Monte Carlo methods to simulate numerically the effects
of stellar evolution, a realistic mass spectrum, galactic tidal fields
on the evolution of dense young or globular star clusters.
