On symplectic homology of the complement of a normal crossing divisor

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.

Equivalent notions of high-dimensional overtwistedness

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.
