Symplectically knotted cubes

Felix Schlenk

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...

Given a family of Lagrangian tori with full quantum corrections, the non-archimedean SYZ mirror construction uses the family Floer theory to construct a non-archimedean analytic space with a global superpotential. In this talk, we will first briefly...

Differential delay equations arise very naturally, but they are much more complicated than ordinary differential equations. Polyfold theory, originally developed for the study of moduli spaces of pseudoholomorphic curves, can help to understand...
