 +**Abstract:​**
 +
 +To each complete Riemannian manifold $M$ is associated a dynamical system -- the geodesic flow on the unit tangent bundle $SM$.  To what extent are the dynamical properties of this flow wedded to the geometry of $M$?  I will discuss some historical highlights, open questions and recent breakthroughs.
