Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: Robust Measurements in Symplectic Topology
Speaker: Lev Buhovski
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will try to explain a special role of robust measurements in symplectic geometry and topology. I will start with the celebrated Eliashberg-Gromov theorem, and then continue with more recent works of Cardin and Viterbo, Entov and Polterovich, Zapolsky, and myself on the rigidity of the Poisson bracket. If time will permit, I will also mention a joint work with Seyfaddini on the subject of continuous Hamiltonian flows, and a joint work with Ostrover on the subject of the uniqueness of Hofer's metric on the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of a symplectic manifold.
