Joint IAS/Princeton/Montreal/Paris/Tel-Aviv Symplectic Geometry Zoominar

Symplectically knotted cubes
Felix Schlenk
9:15am|Remote Access

While by a result of McDuff the space of symplectic embeddings of a closed 4-ball into an open 4-ball is connected, the situation for embeddings of cubes $C^4 = D^2 \times D^2$ is very different. For instance, for the open ball $B^4$ of capacity 1...
