Mayer-Vietoris sequence for relative symplectic cohomology

Thursday, October 19, 2017 -
4:30pm to 5:30pm
I will first recall the definition of an invariant that assigns to any compact subset K of a closed symplectic manifold M a module SH_M(K) over the Novikov ring. I will go over the case of M=two sphere to illustrate various points about the invariant. Finally I will state the Mayer-Vietoris property and explain under what conditions it holds.
