Recent advances in computational power are now enabling scientists to consider problems of population dynamics at an advanced level regarding the small bodies of our solar system, the planets around other stars, dust belts, space debris, etc., and their collective dynamical evolution, stability and instability, order and chaos, aggregations and impacts. Important results on specific populations of celestial bodies, in addition to new methods of computation and analysis, have been obtained in the last few years. This proceedings volume reviews current understanding of the field, and is a valuable resource for professional astronomers and planetary scientists.
