In-Person and Online Talk 

I will first give an overview of ECH. Then I will describe how to compute ECH in the Morse-Bott setting a la Bourgeois. I will discuss some classes of examples where this approach works. Finally, I will sketch the gluing results that allow us to compute ECH using cascades.
