This is a preliminary talk for the Workshop "Introduction to Dynamical Systems Methods for Mission Design" that will take place Jan 16-19 in the school of  Mathematics. In this talk, we will present the basics of Hamiltonian dynamics and why it is useful. It ishoped that it will be accesible for people with background in undergraduate differential equations who want to participate in the workshop.
