C^0 Hamiltonian dynamics and a counterexample to the Arnold conjecture

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
After introducing Hamiltonian homeomorphisms and recalling some of their properties, I will focus on fixed point theory for this class of homeomorphisms. The main goal of this talk is to present the outlines of a C^0 counterexample to the Arnold conjecture in dimensions four and higher. This is joint work with Lev Buhovsky and Vincent Humiliere.
