Symplectic Geometry Seminar

Time: 11:00 AM
Title: Relative Floer theoretic invariants
Speaker: Umut Varolgunes, Stanford University
Location: Math Tower 5-127
I will start by explaining the construction of relative symplectic cohomology, in the c_1(M)=0 case for simplicity, as a graded algebra over the Novikov field. Then, I will list some of its properties including vanishing for stably displaceable subsets and a simple version of the Mayer-Vietoris property. I will also hopefully have some time to discuss the relative version of Lagrangian Floer homology in the tautologically unobstructed case. Part of this is my thesis, and part of it is joint work with D. Tonkonog.
