401-3556-20LTopics in Symplectic Topology6 credits3VP. Biran
AbstractThis will be an introductory course in symplectic geometry and topology.
We will cover the simplest instances of symplectic rigidity phenomena, and techniques to detect and study them. The last part of the course will be devoted to more advanced techniques such as Floer theory.
ObjectiveGet acquainted with the basics of symplectic topology and phenomena
of symplectic rigidity.
