Volume in Seiberg-Witten theory and the existence of two Reeb orbits

Friday, November 1, 2013 -
1:30pm to 2:30pm
I will discuss recent joint work with Vinicius Gripp and Michael Hutchings relating the volume of any contact three-manifold to the length of certain finite sets of Reeb orbits. I will also explain why this result implies that any closed contact three-manifold has at least two embedded Reeb orbits.
