Morse Theory and Invariants of (almost) Symplectic Manifolds

Friday, November 18, 2011 -
4:30pm to 5:30pm
I will discuss two of my current projects which have different aims but use similar techniques. The first aims to understand the equivariant K-theory of symplectic orbifolds. The second is about the topology of toric origami manifolds. Neither space is a symplectic manifold, but each is almost.
