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 C4=D2×D2 is very different. For instance, for the open ball B4 of capacity 1, there exists an...

Eliashberg and Thurston showed that taut foliations on 3-manifolds can be approximated by tight contact structures. I will explain a new approach to this theorem which allows one to control the resulting Reeb flow and hence produce many hypertight...
