This is a working group seminar run by Klaus Mohnke and Chris Wendl on recent developments in symplectic geometry. It generally runs every semester on Mondays. Participants are expected to be familiar with the basics of symplectic geometry, including some knowledge of holomorphic curves and/or Floer-type theories. The seminar is conducted in English.

The seminar takes place this semester on
**Mondays, 13:00-15:00 (c.t.)** in room 1.023
(the BMS Seminar Room) at Rudower Chaussee 25. It will occasionally be preempted by the
Berlin-Hamburg Symplectic
Geometry Seminar.

**Note for new students**: *If you think you might be interested in this seminar
but have neither attended before nor spoken with Profs. Mohnke or Wendl about it,
it is a good idea to get in touch with one of us ahead of time!*

Speaker: Chris WendlTopic: Equivariant transversality and wall-crossingAbstract:
This will be the talk that I had intended to give at the end of the
previous semester but could not due to an injury.
I will say whatever I am currently able to say
about applications of equivariant transversality ideas to bifurcation theory,
i.e. what types of "wall-crossing" phenomena can occur
for closed holomorphic curves under generic 1-parameter deformations of the
almost complex structure. I may also say something about the analogous
problem for closed orbits of Reeb vector fields under 1-parameter deformations
of contact forms.Literature: The super-rigidty paper, section 2.4 |
