WORKSHOP "GEOMETRIC DYNAMICS DAYS" 

FEBRUARY 3-4, 2017 (BOCHUM)

Invited speakers:

1. Helmut Hofer (Institut for Advanced Study, Princeton) - Pseudoholomorphic Curves in Hamiltonian Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry

2. Eduard Zehnder (ETH Zurich) - The beginnings of symplectic topology at the RUB

All the lectures will take place in the lecture room NA 01/99, on the ground floor of the Mathematics Department (Building NA).

Coffee will be served in room NA 1/58, on the first floor of the same building.

Participation is open. If you wish to participate please send an e-mail to Frau Dzwigoll (Sekretariat Prof. Abbondandolo), indicating whether you want us to make a hotel reservation for and whether you will attend the conference dinner. Frau Dzwigoll can also give advice about accommodation. Some limited funding is available for younger participants, if you wish to apply for this funding please communicate this in your email before December 15.

General directions can be found here. A campusmap, as well as other useful maps, can be found here.

The workshop is financially supported by SFB TR-191 and is jointly organized with Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Technische Universität Dortmund and Universität zu Köln.

Abstracts

E. Zehnder - The beginnings of symplectic topology at the RUB

TBA


H. Hofer - Pseudoholomorphic Curves in Hamiltonian Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry

We discuss how pseudoholomorphic curves arise in Hamiltonian Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry and describe an approach to deal with inherent compactness and transversality issues arising in drawing information from moduli spaces of such curves. .
