##### Generating the Fukaya category

The Fukaya category is an interesting invariant of a symplectic manifold. It is, at first sight, a rather fearsome thing: its objects are all Lagrangian submanifolds, an enormous and unruly set.

##### An infinite rank summand of topologically slice knots

Let C_{TS} be the subgroup of the smooth knot concordance group generated by topologically slice knots. Endo showed that C_{TS} contains an infinite rank subgroup, and Livingston and Manolescu-Owens showed that C_{TS} contains a Z^3summand.
