# Lagrangian cobordism: what we know and what is it good for

Friday, October 2, 2015 -

2:00pm to 3:00pm

(Joint seminar with Columbia.) I will describe how the notion of Lagrangian cobordism, introduced by Arnold in 1980, offers a systematic perspective on the study of Lagrangian topology. There are three aspects that will be emphasized: the relations with the triangulated structure of the derived Fukaya category, the connection to Seidelâ€™s representation, cobordism based extensions of the Hofer norm. The talk is based mainly on joint work with Paul Biran (ETH).
