Magnetic geodesics are curves on a closed Riemannian manifold with a prescribed acceleration, and can be thought as a generalization of standard geodesics. In the first part of the talk, we present a notion of curvature for magnetic flows and discuss its implication to the study of periodic magnetic geodesics. In the second part, we focus on Zoll magnetic flows, for which all magnetic geodesics are closed, and present a few open questions and some recent work in progress revolving around this topic.
