Annotation Papers from a March 2000 meeting report on challenges in the areas of stellar dynamics, computing, and observations of the Milky Way, star clusters, and dense stellar systems in active galactic nuclei. Subjects discussed include star cluster dynamics, direct N-body simulation, structure and potential of the Galaxy as a whole and of the solar neighborhood, the Galaxy's nucleus, satellites, and disk dynamics, and its globular cluster system. Some specific paper topics include Monte Carlo simulations of globular cluster dynamics, stellar collisions in the galactic center, faint moving objects of the dark halo, and cross-dynamics of open clusters in the Galaxy. This work lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
