Non-Weinstein Liouville Domains and Three-Dimensional Anosov Flows

Weinstein domains and their symplectic invariants have been extensively studied over the last 30 years. Little is known about non-Weinstein Liouville domains, whose first instance is due to McDuff. I will describe two key examples of such domains in dimension four, and then explain how they fit into a general construction based on Anosov flows on three-manifolds. The symplectic invariants of these “Anosov Liouville domains” constitute new invariants of Anosov flows. The algebraic structure of their wrapped Fukaya categories is in stark contrast with the Weinstein case.
