In this talk, we discuss our work in progress about how degeneration of the divisor at infinity into a normal crossing divisor affects the symplectic homology of an affine variety.
Symplectic Geometry Seminar
The seminar meets each Friday at 1:30 pm, with the venue alternating between Fine Hall 322 at Princeton and Simonyi Hall at the IAS. This seminar also has their own webpage. Please click on seminar title for complete abstract.
In recent joint work with Borman and Eliashberg, a new definition of overtwisted contact structures was given for high-dimensional contact manifolds, which were then classified up to isotopy.
