Contact Submanifolds in the Higher-Dimension

Vendredi 22 mars 15:30-16:30 - Roger Casals - UC Davis

Résumé : In this talk, I will discuss our understanding of contact submanifolds in higher-dimensions. First, I will introduce the problems we are interested in and the current techniques we have to address them. In the main focus of the talk, I will present the construction of contactomorphic (and smoothly isotopic) contact submanifolds which are actually not contact isotopic. This resolves one of the main questions we had in the higher-dimension. Finally, I will be introducing related works in progress and lines of future development. This talk is partially based on my work with J. Etnyre.

Lieu : Université de Nantes, Laboratoire de Mathématiques Jean Leray, Salle Eole.
