Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: Weinstein manifolds and wrapped Fukaya categories
Speaker: Emmy Murphy
Speaker Info: Northwestern
Brief Description: Pre-talk
Special Note:

We discuss the basic geometry of Weinstein manifolds, particularly their relationship with contact geometry, complex geometry, and handlebody theory. We will also discuss the wrapped Fukaya category, a powerful algebraic object associated to any Weinstein manifold. Besides the basic definition and properties, we will also discuss the essential generation results, and surgery formulas relating it to Legendrian contact homology.
