A frontal view on Lefschetz fibrations II

Thursday, February 11, 2016 -
2:30pm to 3:30pm
Please note special time.    In this series of two talks we will discuss Weinstein structures endowed with a Lefschetz fibration in terms of the Legendrian front projection. The main focus is on Weinstein manifolds which admit a Weinstein Lefschetz fibration with an $A_k$--fibre; this provides a large class of Weinstein structures ranging from flexible Weinstein manifolds to rich rigid examples. In particular, we will describe the computation of their symplectic homologies and discuss its implications to Legendrian submanifolds and their Lagrangian fillings.
