DESCRIPTION:Title: Equivariant quantum operations and relations between them\nby Nic
holas Wilkins (Bristol) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nTher
e is growing interest in looking at operations on quantum cohomology that
take into account symmetries in the holomorphic spheres (such as the quant
um Steenrod powers\, using a Z/p-symmetry). In order to prove relations be
tween them\, one needs to generalise this to include equivariant operation
s with more marked points\, varying domains and different symmetry groups.
We will look at the general method of construction of these operations\,
as well as two distinct examples of relations between them.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The geography of immersed Lagrangian fillings of Legendrian submanifo
lds\nby Lisa Traynor (Bryn Mawr) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nA
bstract\nGiven a smooth knot K in the 3-sphere\, a classic question in kno
t theory is: What surfaces in the 4-ball have boundary equal to K? One can
also consider immersed surfaces and ask a “geography” question: What
combinations of genus and double points can be realized by surfaces with b
oundary equal to K? I will discuss symplectic analogues of these question
s: Given a Legendrian knot\, what Lagrangian surfaces can it bound? What
immersed Lagrangian surfaces can it bound? These Lagrangian surfaces are
commonly called Lagrangian fillings of the Legendrian knot and are more ri
gid than their topological counterpart. In particular\, while any smooth
knot bounds an infinite number of topologically distinct surfaces\, there
are classical and non-classical obstructions to the existence of Lagrangia
n fillings of Legendrian knots. Specifically\, a polynomial associated to
the Legendrian boundary through the technique of generating families can
show that there is no compatible embedded Lagrangian filling. Immersed La
grangian fillings are more flexible\, and I will describe how this polynom
ial associated to the Legendrian boundary forbids particular combinations
of genus and double points in immersed Lagrangian fillings. In addition\,
I will describe some constructions of immersed fillings that allow us to
completely answer the Lagrangian geography question for some Legendrian kn
ots. This is joint work with Samantha Pezzimenti.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Zoll contact forms are local maximisers of the systolic ratio\nby
Alberto Abbondandolo (Bochum) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstrac
t\nA central question from systolic geometry is to find upper bounds for t
he systolic ratio of a Riemannian metric on a closed $n$-dimensional manif
old\, i.e. the ratio of the $n$-th power of the shortest length of closed
geodesics by the volume. This question can be naturally extended to Reeb f
lows\, a class of dynamical systems including geodesic flows and induced b
y a contact form on a closed manifold. The aim of this talk is to discuss
a recent result obtained in collaboration with Gabriele Benedetti: Zoll co
ntact forms\, i.e. forms such that all the orbits of the induced Reeb flow
are periodic with the same period\, are local maximisers of the systolic
ratio. Consequences of this result are: (i) sharp systolic inequalities fo
r Riemannian and Finsler metrics close to Zoll ones\, (ii) the perturbativ
e case of a conjecture of Viterbo on the symplectic capacity of convex bod
ies\, (iii) a generalization of Gromov's non-squeezing theorem in the inte
rmediate dimensions for symplectomorphisms that are close to linear ones.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral characterizations of Besse and Zoll Reeb flows\nby Marco
Mazzucchelli (ENS- Lyon) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn
this talk\, I will address a geometric inverse problem from contact geome
try: is it possible to recognize whether all orbits of a given Reeb flow a
re closed from the knowledge of the action spectrum? Borrowing the termino
logy from Riemannian geometry\, Reeb flows all of whose orbits are closed
are sometimes called Besse\, and Besse Reeb flows all of whose orbits have
the same minimal period are sometimes called Zoll. In the talk I will su
mmarize recent results on this inverse problem in a few settings: geodesic
flows (joint work with Stefan Suhr)\, closed contact 3-manifolds (joint w
ork with Daniel Cristofaro-Gardiner)\, convex contact spheres and\, more g
enerally\, restricted contact type hypersurfaces of symplectic vector spac
es (joint work with Viktor Ginzburg and Basak Gürel). I will also mention
a few conjectures and open problems.\n

uivariant and a family Floer equivariant version of contact homology. Both
theories are generated by two copies of each Reeb orbit over Z and captur
e interesting torsion information. I will explain the need for an obstruc
tion bundle gluing correction term in the expression of the differential i
n the presence of contractible Reeb orbits\, which is essential even in th

the original cylindrical theory proposed by Eliashberg-Givental-Hofer via
our constructions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Mirrors of curves and their Fukaya categories\nby Denis Auroux (H
arvard) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nHomological mirror s
ymmetry predicts that the derived category of coherent sheaves on a curve
has a symplectic counterpart as the Fukaya category of a mirror space. How
ever\, with the exception of elliptic curves\, this mirror is usually a sy
mplectic Landau-Ginzburg model\, i.e. a non-compact manifold equipped with
the extra data of a "stop" in its boundary at infinity. Most of the talk
will focus on a family of Landau-Ginzburg models which provide mirrors to
curves in (C*)^2 or in toric surfaces (or more generally to hypersurfaces
in toric varieties)\, and their fiberwise wrapped Fukaya categories (joint
work with Mohammed Abouzaid). I will then discuss more a speculative way
of constructing mirrors of curves without Landau-Ginzburg models\, involvi
ng a new flavor of Lagrangian Floer theory in trivalent configurations of
Riemann surfaces (joint work with Alexander Efimov and Ludmil Katzarkov).\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Floer Cohomology and Arc Spaces.\nby Mark Mclean (SUNY\, Stony B
rook) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet f be a polynomial
over the complex numbers with an isolated singular point at the origin and
let d be a positive integer. To such a polynomial we can assign a variety
called the dth contact locus of f. Morally\, this corresponds to the spac
e of d-jets of holomorphic disks in complex affine space whose boundary `w
raps' around the singularity d times. We show that Floer cohomology of the
dth power of the Milnor monodromy map is isomorphic to compactly supporte
d cohomology of the dth contact locus. This answers a question of Paul Sei
del and it also proves a conjecture of Nero Budur\, Javier Fernández de B
obadilla\, Quy Thuong Lê and Hong Duc Nguyen. The key idea of the proof i
s to use a jet space version of the PSS map together with a filtration arg
ument.\n

symplectomorphism is a symplectomorphism that is not isotopic to the ident
ity through compactly supported symplectomorphisms.Using Floer-theoretic m
ethods\, we prove that the non-existence of an exotic symplectomorphism on
the standard symplectic ball\, $\\mathbb{B}^{2n}\,$ implies a rather stri
ct topological condition on the free contact circle actions on the standar
d contact sphere\, $\\mathbb{S}^{2n-1}.$ We also prove an analogue for a L
iouville domain and contact circle actions on its boundary. Applications i
nclude results on the symplectic mapping class group\, the fundamental gro
up of the group of contactomorphisms\, and exotic contact structures on $\
\mathbb{S}^3.$ The talk is based on joint work with Dusan Drobnjak.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Infinite staircases and reflexive polygons (part of Ellipsoid day jo
int with Western Hemisphere Virtual Symplectic Seminar)\nby Ana Rita P
ires (Edinburgh) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nA classic r
esult\, due to McDuff and Schlenk\, asserts that the function that encodes
when a four-dimensional symplectic ellipsoid can be embedded into a four-
dimensional ball has a remarkable structure: the function has infinitely m
any corners\, determined by the odd-index Fibonacci numbers\, that fit tog
ether to form an infinite staircase. The work of McDuff and Schlenk has re
cently led to considerable interest in understanding when the ellipsoid em
bedding function for other symplectic 4-manifolds is partly described by a
n infinite staircase. In this talk we will discuss a general framework fo
r analyzing this question for a large family of targets\, and in particula
r give an obstruction to the existence of an infinite staircase that exper
imentally seems strong. We will then look at the special case of rational
convex toric domains / closed symplectic toric manifolds\, for which we pr
ove the existence of six families of targets with infinite staircases that
are distinguished by the fact that their moment polygon is reflexive. The
proof uses\, among other tools\, almost toric fibrations -- see also the
second of the ellipsoid day talks. Finally\, we conjecture that these six
families constitute a complete answer to the question of existence of infi
nite staircase. This conjecture has been verified in the case when the tar
get is an ellipsoid -- see the third of the ellipsoid day talks. This is b
ased on joint work of Dan Cristofaro-Gardiner\, Tara Holm\, Alessia Mandin
i\, and Ana Rita Pires.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Fukaya category for Landau-Ginzburg orbifolds and Berglund-H\\"ubsch
homological mirror symmetry for curve singularities.\nby Cheol-Hyun C
ho (Seoul) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor a weighted ho
mogeneous polynomial and a choice of a diagonal symmetry group\, we define
a new Fukaya category based on wrapped Fukaya category of its Milnor fibe
r together with monodromy\ninformation. It is analogous to the variation o
perator in singularity theory. As an application\, we formulate a complete
version of Berglund-H\\"ubsch homological mirror symmetry and prove it fo
r two variable cases. Namely\, given one of the polynomials $f= x^p+y^q\,
x^p+xy^q\,x^py+xy^q$ and a symmetry group $G$\, we use Floer theoretic con
struction to obtain the transpose polynomial $f^t$ with the transpose symm
etry group $G^t$ as well as an explicit A-infinity equivalence between the
new Fukaya category of $(f\,G)$ to the matrix factorization category of $
(f^t\, G^t)$. In this case\, monodromy is mirror to the restriction of LG
model to a hypersurface. For ADE singularities\, Auslander-Reiten quiver
for indecomposable matrix factorizations were known from 80's\, and we fin
d the corresponding Lagrangians as well as surgery exact sequences. This
is a joint work with Dongwook Choa and Wonbo Jung.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Examples related to Viterbo's conjectures\nby Michael Hutchings
(Berkeley) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nViterbo conjectur
ed that a normalized symplectic capacity\, on convex domains of a given vo
lume\, is maximized for the ball. A stronger version of this conjecture as
serts that all normalized symplectic capacities agree on convex domains. S
ince convexity is not symplectomorphism invariant\, one can also ask to wh
at extent these statements still hold for nonconvex domains. We survey som
e special cases and examples around these questions\, including recent joi

DESCRIPTION:Title: Mirror symmetry for chain type polynomials\nby Umut Varolgunes (

plaining Takahashi's homological mirror symmetry (HMS) conjecture regardin
g invertible polynomials\, which is an open string reinterpretation of Ber
glund-Hubsch-Henningson mirror symmetry. In joint work with A. Polishchuk\
, we resolved this HMS conjecture in the chain type case up to rigorous pr
oofs of general statements about Fukaya-Seidel categories. Our proof goes
by showing that the categories in both sides are obtained from the categor
y Vect(k) by applying a recursion. I will explain this recursion categoric
ally and sketch the argument for why it is satisfied on the A-side assumin
g the aforementioned foundational results. If time permits\, I will also m

DESCRIPTION:Title: The singular Weinstein conjecture and the Contact/Beltrami mirror\nby Eva Miranda (UPC) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn t
his talk\, I will address the (singular) Weinstein conjecture about the ex
istence of (singular) periodic orbits of Reeb vector fields on compact man
ifolds endowed with singular contact forms. Our motivating examples come f
rom Celestial mechanics (restricted three-body problem) where contact topo
logy techniques were already successful in determining the existence of pe
riodic orbits (Albers-Frauenfelder-Van Koert-Paternain). With the aim of c
ompleting this understanding\, we deal with the restricted three body exam
ple by adding the so-called "infinity set" (via a McGehee regularization).
This induces a singularity on the contact structure which permeates the g
eometry and topology of the problem.\n\nHofer's fine techniques to prove t
he Weinstein conjecture for overtwisted 3-dimensional contact manifolds ca
n be adapted in this singular set-up under some symmetry assumptions close
to the singular set (which also work for the non-compact case). We prove
the existence of infinite smooth Reeb periodic orbits on the (compact) cri
tical set of the contact form. This critical set can often be identified w
ith the collision set or set at infinity in the motivating examples from C
elestial mechanics. In those examples\, escape trajectories can be often c
ompactified as singular periodic orbits.\n \nTime permitting\, we will end
up this talk proving the existence of escape orbits and generalized singu
lar periodic orbits for 3-dimensional singular contact manifolds under som
e mild assumptions. Our theory benefits in a great manner from the existen
ce of a correspondence (up to reparametrization) between Reeb and Beltrami
vector fields (Etnyre and Ghrist) which can be exported to this singular
set-up. In particular\, Uhlenbeck's genericity results for the eigenfuncti
ons of the Laplacian is a key point of the proof.\n\nThe contents of this
talk are based on joint works with Cédric Oms and Daniel Peralta-Salas.\n

angulated categories.\n\nAbstract: One can consider endofunctors of triang
ulated categories as categorical dynamical systems\, and study their long
term behaviors under large iterations. There are (at least) three natural
invariants that one can associate to endofunctors from the dynamical persp
ective: categorical entropy\, and upper/lower shifting numbers. We will re
call some background on categorical dynamical systems and categorical entr
opy\, and introduce the notion of shifting numbers\, which measure the asy
mptotic amount by which an endofunctor of a triangulated category translat
es inside the category. The shifting numbers are analogous to Poincare tra
nslation numbers. We additionally establish that in some examples the shif
ting numbers provide a quasimorphism on the group of autoequivalences. Joi
nt work with Simion Filip.\n\nSurena Hozoori: Symplectic Geometry of Anoso
v Flows in Dimension 3 and Bi-Contact Topology.\n\nAbstract: We give a pur
ely contact and symplectic geometric characterization of Anosov flows in d
imension 3 and set up a framework to use tools from contact and symplectic
geometry and topology in the study of questions about Anosov dynamics. If
time permits\, we will discuss some uniqueness results for the underlying
(bi-) contact structure for an Anosov flow\, and/or a characterization of
Anosovity based on Reeb flows.\n\nMarcelo Atallah: Hamiltonian no-torsion
\n\nAbstract: In 2002 Polterovich notably showed that Hamiltonian diffeomo
rphisms of finite order\, which we call Hamiltonian torsion\, must be triv
ial on closed symplectically aspherical manifolds. We study the existence
of Hamiltonian torsion and its metric rigidity properties in more general
situations. First\, we extend Polterovich's result to closed symplecticall
y Calabi-Yau and closed negative monotone manifolds. Second\, going beyond
topological constraints\, we describe how Hamiltonian torsion is related
to the existence of pseudo-holomorphic spheres and answer a close variant
of Problem 24 from the introductory monograph of McDuff-Salamon. Finally\,
we prove an analogue of Newman’s 1931 theorem for Hofer’s metric and
Viterbo’s spectral metric on the Hamiltonian group of monotone symplecit
c manifolds: a sufficiently small ball around the identity contains no tor
sion. During the talk\, I shall discuss the results above and some of the
key ingredients of their proofs. This talk is based on joint work with Ego

the topology of the complement. In specific cases this complement has a We
instein structure\, and we develop an algorithm to construct a Weinstein h

DESCRIPTION:Title: Algebraic torus actions on Fukaya categories and tameness of change
in Floer homology under symplectic isotopies.\nby Yusuf Baris Kartal (
Princeton) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe purpose of th
is talk is to explore how Lagrangian Floer homology groups change under (n
on-Hamiltonian) symplectic isotopies on a (negatively) monotone symplectic
manifold $(M\,\\omega)$ satisfying a strong non-degeneracy condition. Mor
e precisely\, given two Lagrangian branes $L\,L'$\, consider family of Flo
er homology groups $HF(\\phi_v(L)\,L')$\, where $v\\in H^1(M\,\\mathbb R)$
and $\\phi_v$ is the time-1 map of a symplectic isotopy with flux $v$. We
show how to fit this collection into an algebraic sheaf over the algebrai
c torus $H^1(M\,\\mathbb G_m)$. The main tool is the construction of an "a
lgebraic action" of $H^1(M\,\\mathbb G_m)$ on the Fukaya category. As an a
pplication\, we deduce the change in Floer homology groups satisfy various
tameness properties\, for instance\, the dimension is constant outside an
algebraic subset of $H^1(M\,\\mathbb G_m)$. Similarly\, given closed $1$-
form $\\alpha$\, which generates a symplectic isotopy denoted by $\\phi_\\
alpha^t$\, the Floer homology groups $HF(\\phi_\\alpha^t(L)\,L')$ have ran
k that is constant in $t$\, with finitely many possible exceptions.\n

his manifold approach to algebraic K-theory of spaces. Using the rational
equivalence of this space with BO\, as proved by Bökstedt\, we conclude
that the stable Lagrangian Gauss map of L vanishes on all homotopy groups.
In particular when M is a homotopy sphere\, we obtain the triviality of t

ymmetric product orbifolds. This is joint work with Leonid Polterovich.\n

aoyun Bai(Princeton)\, $SU(n)$–Casson invariants and symplectic geometry
.\n\nIn 1985\, Casson introduced an invariant of integer homology 3-sphere
s by counting $SU(2)$-representations of the fundamental groups. The gener
alization of Casson invariant by considering Lie groups $SU(n)$ has been l

ted Contact Forms.\n\nInspired by the symplectic Banach-Mazur distance\, p
roposed by Ostrover and Polterovich in the setting of non-degenerate stars
haped domains of Liouville manifolds\, we define a distance on the space o
f contact forms supporting a given contact structure on a closed contact m
anifold and we use it to bi-Lipschitz embed part of the 2-dimensional Eucl
idean space into the space of overtwisted contact forms supporting a given
contact structure on a smooth closed manifold.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Categorical non-properness in wrapped Floer theory\nby Sheel Gan
atra (USC) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn all known expl
icit computations on Weinstein manifolds\, the self-wrapped Floer homology
of non-compact exact Lagrangian is always either infinite-dimensional or
zero. We will explain why a global variant of this observed phenomenon hol
ds in broad generality: the wrapped Fukaya category of any Weinstein (or n
on-degenerate Liouville) manifold is always either non-proper or zero\, as
is any quotient thereof. Moreover any non-compact connected exact Lagrang
ian is always either a "non-proper object" or zero in such a wrapped Fukay
a category\, as is any idempotent summand thereof. We will also examine wh
ere the argument could break if one drops exactness\, which is consistent
with known computations of non-exact wrapped Fukaya categories which are s
mooth\, proper\, and non-vanishing (e.g.\, work of Ritter-Smith).\n

product on the cohomology of a symplectic manifold relative to a Lagrangi
an submanifold\, with coefficients in a Novikov ring. The associativity of
this product is equivalent to an open version of the WDVV equations for a
n appropriate disk superpotential. Both structures — the quantum product
and the WDVV equations — are consequences of a more general structure w

ieties (Maxim Jeffs)\n\nIn this talk I will explain Auroux' definition of
the Fukaya category of a singular hypersurface and two results about this
definition\, illustrated with some examples. The first result is that Auro
ux' category is equivalent to the Fukaya-Seidel category of a Landau-Ginzb
urg model on a smooth variety\; the second result is a homological mirror
symmetry equivalence at certain large complex structure limits. I will als
o discuss ongoing work on generalizations.\n\nWrapped sutured Legendrian h
omology and the conormal of braids (Côme Dattin)\n\nIn this talk we will
discuss invariants of sutured Legendrians. A sutured contact manifold can
be seen as either generalizing the contactisation of a Liouville domain\,
or as a presentation of a contact manifold with convex boundary. Using the
first point of view\, we define the wrapped sutured homology of Legendria
ns with boundary\, employing ideas coming from Floer theory. To illustrate
the second aspect\, we apply the unit conormal construction to braids wit
h two strands\, which yields a sutured Legendrian. We will show that\, if
the conormals of two 2-braids are Legendrian isotopic\, then the braids ar
e equivalent.\n\nCapacities from the Chiu-Tamarkin complex (Bingyu Zhang)\
n\nIn this talk\, we will discuss the Chiu-Tamarkin complex. It is a sympl
ectic/contact invariant that comes from the microlocal sheaf theory. I wil
l explain how to define some capacities using the Chiu-Tamarkin complex in
both symplectic and contact situations. The main result is the structure
theorem of the Chiu-Tamarkin complex of convex toric domains. Consequently
\, we can compute the capacities of convex toric domains.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Caustics of Lagrangian homotopy spheres with stably trivial Gauss ma
p\nby Daniel Álvarez-Gavela (MIT) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\
nAbstract\nThe h-principle for the simplification of caustics (i.e. Lagran
gian tangencies) reduces a geometric problem to a homotopical problem. In
this talk I will explain the solution to this homotopical problem in the c
ase of spheres. More precisely\, I will show that the stably trivial eleme
nts of the nth homotopy group of the Lagrangian Grassmannian $U_n/O_n$\n\,
which lies in the metastable range\, admit representatives with only fold
type tangencies. By the h-principle\, it follows that if $D$ is a Lagrang
ian distribution defined along a Lagrangian homotopy sphere $L$\, then the
re exists a Hamiltonian isotopy which simplifies the tangencies between $L
$ and $D$ to consist only of folds if and only if $D$ is stably trivial. I
will give two applications of this result\, one to the arborealization pr
ogram and another to the study of nearby Lagrangian homotopy spheres. Join
t work with David Darrow (in the form of an undergraduate research project

bings bounding contractible manifolds and homology balls\n\nA central prob
lem in low-dimensional topology asks which homology 3-spheres bound contra
ctible 4-manifolds and homology 4-balls. In this talk\, we address this pr
oblem for plumbed 3-manifolds and we present the classical and new results
together. Along the way\, we touch symplectic geometry by using the class
ical results of Eliashberg and Gompf. Our approach is based on Mazur’s f
amous argument which provides a unification of all results.\n\n(Irene Seif
ert) Periodic delay orbits and the polyfold IFT\n\nDifferential delay equa
tions arise very naturally\, but they are much more complicated than ordin
ary differential equations. Polyfold theory\, originally developed for the
study of moduli spaces of pseudoholomorphic curves\, can help to understa
nd solutions of certain delay equations. In my talk\, I will show an exist
ence result about periodic delay orbits with small delay. If time permits\
, we can discuss possible further applications of polyfold theory to the d
ifferential delay equations. This is joint work with Peter Albers.\n\n(Han
g Yuan) Disk counting via family Floer theory\n\nGiven a family of Lagrang
ian tori with full quantum corrections\, the non-archimedean SYZ mirror co
nstruction uses the family Floer theory to construct a non-archimedean ana
lytic space with a global superpotential. In this talk\, we will first bri
efly review the construction. Then\, we will apply it to the Gross’s fib
rations. As an application\, we can compute all the non-trivial open GW in
variants for a Chekanov-type torus in $\\mathbb{CP}^n$ or $\\mathbb{CP}^r\
\times \\mathbb{CP}^{n-r}$. When $n=2$\, $r=1$\, we retrieve the previous
results of Auroux and Chekanov-Schlenk without finding the disks explicitl
y. It is also compatible with the Pascaleff-Tonkonog’s work on Lagrangia
n mutations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Degenerations of Kahler forms on K3 surfaces\, and some dynamics
\nby Simion Filip (Chicago) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\n
K3 surfaces have a rich geometry and admit interesting holomorphic automor
phisms. As examples of Calabi-Yau manifolds\, they admit Ricci-flat Kähle
r metrics\, and a lot of attention has been devoted to how these metrics d
egenerate as the Kähler class approaches natural boundaries. I will discu
ss how to use the full automorphism group to analyze the degenerations and
obtain certain canonical objects (closed positive currents) on the bounda
ry. While most of the previous work was devoted to degenerating the metric
along an elliptic fibration (motivated by the SYZ picture of mirror symme
try) I will discuss how to analyze all the other points. Time permitting\,
I will also describe the construction of canonical heights on K3 surfaces
(in the sense of number theory)\, generalizing constructions due to Silve
rman and Tate.\nJoint work with Valentino Tosatti.\n

, I will discuss a generalization of this program to the spatial problem.\
n\nFor the first step\, we obtain the existence of global hypersurfaces of
section for which the return maps are Hamiltonian\, valid for energies be
low the first critical value and all mass ratios. For the second\, we prov
e a higher-dimensional version of the Poincaré-Birkhoff theorem\, which g
ives infinitely many orbits of arbitrary large period\, provided a suitabl
e twist condition is satisfied. Time permitting\, we also discuss a constr
uction that associates a Reeb dynamics on a moduli space of holomorphic cu

ties.\n\nThis is based on joint work with Otto van Koert.\n

s\nby Laurent Côté (IAS/Harvard) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\
nAbstract\nThere is notion of a smooth categorical compactification of dg/
A-infinity categories: for example\, a smooth compactification of algebrai
c varieties induces a smooth categorical compactification of the associate
d bounded dg categories of coherent sheaves. In symplectic topology\, wrap
ped Fukaya categories of Weinstein manifolds admit smooth compactification
s by partially wrapped Fukaya categories. The goal of this talk is to expl
ain how to associate an "action filtration" to a smooth categorical compac
tifications\, which is invariant (up to appropriate equivalence) under zig
-zags of smooth compactifications. I will then discuss applications to sym
plectic topology and categorical dynamics. This talk reports on joint work

thematician and an extremely complex person\, Floer exhibited\, as one fri
end put it\, a "radical individuality." He viewed the world around him wit
h a singularly critical way of thinking and a quintessential disregard for
convention. Indeed\, his revolutionary mathematical ideas\, contradicting
conventional wisdom\, could only be inspired by such impetus\, and can on
ly be understood in this context.\n\nPoincaré's research on the Three Bod
y Problem laid the foundations for the fields of dynamical systems and sym
plectic geometry. From whence the ancestral trail follows Marston Morse an
d Morse theory\, Vladimir Arnold and the Arnold conjectures\, through to b
reakthroughs by Yasha Eliashberg. Likewise\, Charles Conley and Eduard Zeh

hic curves\, providing a new and powerful tool to study symplectic geometr
y\, and Edward Witten's fresh perspective on Morse theory. And finally\, A

SFT capacities of toric domain\n\nAbstract: Siegel has recently defined
‘higher’ symplectic capacities using rational SFT that obstruct symple

of symplectic embeddings of a closed 4-ball into an open 4-ball is connec
ted\, the situation for embeddings of cubes $C^4=D^2 \\times D^2$ is very
different. For instance\, for the open ball $B^4$ of capacity 1\, there ex
ists an explicit decreasing sequence $c_1\,c_2\,\\ldots \\to 1/3$ such tha
t for $c < c_k$ there are at least k symplectic embeddings of the closed c
ube $C^4(c)$ of capacity c into $B^4$ that are not isotopic. Furthermore\,
there are infinitely many non-isotopic symplectic embeddings of $C^4(1/3)
$ into $B^4$.\n\nA similar result holds for several other targets\, like t
he open 4-cube\, the complex projective plane\, the product of two equal 2
-spheres\, or a monotone product of such manifolds and any closed monotone
toric symplectic manifold. \n\nThe proof uses exotic Lagrangian tori. \n\

seen the appearance of a plethora of possible metrics on spaces of Lagrang

ric and spectral norm\, Biran\, Cornea\, and Shelukhin have constructed fa
milies of so-called weighted fragmentation metrics on these spaces. I will

r finite subgroups $G$ of $SU(2\,\\mathbb C)$. We explain how to compute t
he cylindrical contact homology of $S^3/G$ by means of perturbing the cano
nical contact form by a Morse function that is invariant under the corresp

ng of knots in overtwisted contact manifolds\nAbstract: Knots associated t
o overtwisted manifolds are less explored. There are two types of knots in
an overtwisted manifold – loose and non-loose. Non-loose knots are knot
s with tight complements whereas loose knots have overtwisted complements.
While we understand loose knots\, non-loose knots remain a mystery. The c
lassification and structure problems of these knots vary greatly compared
to the knots in tight manifolds. Especially we are interested in how satel
lite operations on a knot in overtwisted manifold changes the geometric pr
operty of the knot. In this talk\, I will discuss under what conditions ca
bling operation on a non-loose knot preserves non-looseness. This is a joi

DESCRIPTION:Title: Results on abundance of global surfaces of section\nby Umberto H
ryniewicz (RWTH Aachen) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nOne
might ask if global surfaces of section (GSS) for Reeb flows in dimension
3 are abundant in two different senses. One might ask if GSS are abundant
for a given Reeb flow\, or if Reeb flows carrying some GSS are abundant in
the set of all Reeb flows. In this talk\, answers to these two questions
in specific contexts will be presented. First\, I would like to discuss a
result\, obtained in collaboration with Florio\, stating that there are ex
plicit sets of Reeb flows on $S^3$ which are right-handed in the sense of
Ghys\; in particular\, for such a flow all finite (non-empty) collections
of periodic orbits span a GSS. Then\, I would like to discuss genericity r
esults\, obtained in collaboration with Colin\, Dehornoy and Rechtman\, fo
r Reeb flows carrying a GSS\; as a particular case of such results\, we pr

DESCRIPTION:Title: Big fiber theorems and ideal-valued measures in symplectic topology<
/a>\nby Yaniv Ganor (Technion) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstrac
t\nIn various areas of mathematics there exist "big fiber theorems"\, thes
e are theorems of the following type: "For any map in a certain class\, th
ere exists a 'big' fiber"\, where the class of maps and the notion of size
changes from case to case.\n\nWe will discuss three examples of such theo
rems\, coming from combinatorics\, topology and symplectic topology from a
unified viewpoint provided by Gromov's notion of ideal-valued measures.\n
\nWe adapt the latter notion to the realm of symplectic topology\, using a
n enhancement of Varolgunes’ relative symplectic cohomology to include c
ohomology of pairs. This allows us to prove symplectic analogues for the f
irst two theorems\, yielding new symplectic rigidity results.\n\nNecessary
preliminaries will be explained.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Exact orbifold fillings of contact manifolds\nby Fabio Gironella
(HU Berlin) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe topic of th
e talk will be Floer theories on exact symplectic orbifolds with smooth co
ntact boundary. More precisely\, I will first describe the construction\,
which only uses classical transversality techniques\, of a symplectic coho
mology group on such symplectic orbifolds. Then\, I will give some geometr
ical applications\, such as restrictions on possible singularities of exac
t symplectic fillings of some particular contact manifolds\, and the exist
ence\, in any odd dimension at least 5\, of a pair of contact manifolds wi
th no exact symplectic (smooth) cobordisms in either direction. This is jo
int work with Zhengyi Zhou.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: GIT quotients and Symplectic data analysis\nby Urs Frauenfelder
(Augsburg) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nThis is joint wor
k with Agustin Moreno and Dayung Koh. The restricted three-body problem is
invariant under various antisymplectic involutions. These real structures
give rise to the notion of symmetric periodic orbits which simultaneously
have a closed string interpretation namely as a\nperiodic orbit as well a
s an open string interpretation as Hamiltonian chords. This makes the bifu
rcation analysis of symmetric periodic orbits very intriguing since under
bifurcations two local Floer homologies are invariant\, the periodic one a
s well as the Lagrangian one. In this talk we explain how methods from sym
metric space theory can help to extract efficiently datas from reduced mon
odromy matrices of periodic orbits helping to analyse the possible bifurca
tion patterns.\n

\n\n\nAbstract\nWenyuan Li (Northwestern)\nTitle: Estimating Reeb chords u
sing microlocal sheaf theory\n\nAbstract: We show that\, for closed Legend
rians in 1-jet bundles\, when there is a sheaf with singular support on th
e Legendrian\, then (1) its self Reeb chords are bounded from below by hal
f the sum of Betti numbers\, and (2) the Reeb chords between itself and it
s Hamiltonian push off is bounded from below by Betti numbers when the C^0
-norm of the Hamiltonian is small. I will show how to visualize Reeb chord
s/Lagrangian intersections in sheaf theory\, and then explain the duality
exact triangle and the persistence structure used in the proof. If time pe
rmits\, I will state a conjecture on the relative Calabi-Yau structure tha
t arises from the duality exact triangle.\n\nJakob Hedicke (Bochum)\nTitle
: Lorentzian distance functions on the group of contactomorphisms\n\nAbstr
act: The notion of positive (non-negative) contact isotopy\, defined by El
iashberg and Polterovich\, leads to two relations on the group of contacto
morphisms. These relations resemble the causal relations of a Lorentzian m
anifold. In this talk we will introduce a class of Lorentzian distance fun
ctions on the group of contactomorphisms\, that are compatible with these
relations.\nThe Lorentzian distance functions turn out to be continuous wi
th respect to the Hofer-norm of a contactomorphism defined by Shelukhin.\n
\nJohan Asplund (Uppsala)\nTitle: Simplicial descent for Chekanov-Eliashbe
rg dg-algebras\n\nAbstract: In this talk we introduce a type of surgery de
composition of Weinstein manifolds we call simplicial decompositions. We w
ill discuss the result that the Chekanov-Eliashberg dg-algebra of the atta
ching spheres of a Weinstein manifold satisfies a descent (cosheaf) proper
ty with respect to a simplicial decomposition. Simplicial decompositions g
eneralize the notion of Weinstein connected sum and there is in fact a one
-to-one correspondence (up to Weinstein homotopy) between simplicial decom
positions and so-called good sectorial covers. The motivation behind these
results is the sectorial descent result for wrapped Fukaya categories by
Ganatra-Pardon-Shende.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On symplectic capacities and their blind spots\nby Ely Kerman (U
IUC) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will dis
cuss a joint project with Yuanpu Liang in which we establish several prope
rties of the sequence of symplectic capacities defined by Gutt and Hutchin
gs for star-shaped domains using $S^1$-equivariant symplectic homology. Am
ong the results discussed will be the fact that\, unlike the first of thes
e capacities\, the others all fail to satisfy the symplectic version of th
e Brunn Minkowski established by Artstein-Avidan and Ostrover. We also sho
w that the Gutt-Hutchings capacities\, together with the volume\, do not c
onstitute a complete set of symplectic invariants even for convex bodies w
ith smooth boundary. The examples constructed to prove these results are n
ot exotic. They are convex and concave toric domains. The main new tool us
ed is a significant simplification of the formulae of Gutt and Hutchings f
or the capacities of such domains\, that holds under an additional symmetr
y assumption. This allows us to compute the capacities in new examples and
to identify and exploit blind spots that they sometimes share.\n

metry and topology of Hamiltonian Floer complexes in low-dimension\n\nIn t
his talk\, I will present two results relating the qualitative dynamics of
non-degenerate Hamiltonian isotopies on surfaces to the structure of thei
r Floer complexes. The first will be a topological characterization of tho
se Floer chains which represent the fundamental class in $CF_*(H\,J)$ and
which moreover lie in the image of some chain-level PSS map. This leads to
a novel symplectically bi-invariant norm on the group of Hamiltonian diff
eomorphisms\, which is both $C^0$-continuous and computable in terms of th
e underlying dynamics. The second result explains how certain portions of
the Hamiltonian Floer chain complex may be interpreted geometrically in te
rms of positively transverse singular foliations of the mapping torus\, wi
th singular leaves given by certain maximal collections of unlinked orbits
of the suspended flow. This construction may be seen to provide a Floer-t
heoretic construction of the `torsion-low’ foliations which appear in Le
Calvez’s theory of transverse foliations for surface homeomorphisms\, t
hereby establishing a bridge between the two theories.\n\n$\\textbf{Pazit

$\n\nTitle: Higher algebra of A-infinity algebras in Morse theory\n\nIn th
is short talk\, I will introduce the notion of n-morphisms between two A-i
nfinity algebras. These higher morphisms are such that 0-morphisms corresp
ond to standard A-infinity morphisms and 1-morphisms correspond to A-infin
ity homotopies. Their combinatorics are then encoded by new families of po
lytopes\, which I call the n-multiplihedra and which generalize the standa
rd multiplihedra. Elaborating on works by Abouzaid and Mescher\, I will th
en explain how this higher algebra of A-infinity algebras naturally arises
in the context of Morse theory\, using moduli spaces of perturbed Morse g
radient trees\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Beyond semitoric\nby Susan Tolman (UIUC) as part of Symplectic z
oominar\n\n\nAbstract\nA compact four dimensional completely integrable sy
stem $f:M\\rightarrow \\mathbb R^2$ is semitoric if it has only non-degene
rate singularities\, without hyperbolic blocks\, and one of the components
of generates a circle action. Semitoric systems have been extensively st
udied and have many nice properties: for example\, the preimages $f^{-1}(x
)$ are all connected. Unfortunately\, although there are many interesting
examples of semitoric systems\, the class has some limitation. For example
\, there are blowups of $S^2\\times S^2$ with Hamiltonian circle actions w
hich cannot be extended to semitoric systems. We expand the class of semit
oric systems by allowing certain degenerate singularities\, which we call
ephemeral singularities. We prove that the preimage $f^{-1}(x)$ is still c
onnected for this larger class. We hope that this class will be large enou
gh to include not only all compact four manifolds with Hamiltonian circle
actions\, but more generally all complexity one spaces. Based on joint wor

entropy and discuss its connections to topological entropy. The barcode e
ntropy is a Floer-theoretic invariant of a compactly supported Hamiltonian

loer complex. The topological entropy bounds from above the barcode entrop
y and\, conversely\, the barcode entropy is bounded from below by the topo
logical entropy of any hyperbolic locally maximal invariant set. As a cons

DESCRIPTION:Title: nots\, minimal surfaces and J-holomorphic curves\nby Joel Fine (
ULB) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet $K$ be a knot or li
nk in the 3-sphere\, thought of as the ideal boundary of hyperbolic 4-spac
e\, \n$H^4$. The main theme of my talk is that it should be possible to co
unt minimal surfaces in $H^4$\nwhich fill $K$ and obtain a link invariant.
In other words\, the count doesn’t change under isotopies of $K$. When
one counts minimal disks\, this is a theorem. Unfortunately there is curre
ntly a gap in the proof for more complicated surfaces. I will explain “m
orally” why the result should be true and how I intend to fill the gap.
In fact\, this (currently conjectural) invariant is a kind of Gromov–Wit
ten invariant\, counting $J$-holomorphic curves in a certain symplectic 6-
manifold diffeomorphic to $S^4\\times H^4$. The symplectic structure becom
es singular at infinity\, in directions transverse to the $S^2$ fibres. Th
ese singularities mean that both the Fredholm and compactness theories hav
e fundamentally new features\, which I will describe. Finally\, there is a
whole class of infinite-volume symplectic 6-manifolds which have singular
ities modelled on the above situation. I will explain how it should be pos
sible to count $J$-holomorphic curves in these manifolds too\, and obtain
invariants for links in other 3-manifolds.\n

ract: A homeomorphism is called contact if it can be written as a $C^0$-li
mit of contactomorphisms. The contact version of Eliashberg-Gromov rigidit
y theorem states that smooth contact homeomorphisms preserve the contact s
tructure. A submanifold $L$ of a contact manifold $(Y\,\\xi)$ is called is
otropic if $\\xi\\vert_{TL}=0$. Isotropic submanifolds of maximal dimensio
n are called Legendrian\, otherwise we call them subcritical isotropic. In
this talk\, we will try to answer whether the isotropic property is prese
rved by contact homeomorphisms. It is expected that subcritical isotropic
submanifolds are flexible\, while we expect that Legendrians are rigid. We
show that subcritical isotropic curves are flexible\, and we give a new p
roof of the rigidity of Legendrians in dimension 3. Moreover\, we provide
a certain type of rigidity of Legendrians in higher dimensions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Integer-valued Gromov-Witten type invariants\nby Guangbo Xu (Tex
as A&M) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nAbstract:\n\nGromov-
Witten invariants for a general target are rational-valued but not necessa
rily integer-valued. This is due to the contribution of curves with nontri
vial automorphism groups. In 1997 Fukaya and Ono proposed a new method in
symplectic geometry which can count curves with a trivial automorphism gro
up. While ordinary Gromov-Witten invariants only use the orientation on th
e moduli spaces\, this integer-valued counts are supposed to also use the
(stable) complex structure on the moduli spaces. In this talk I will prese
nt the recent joint work with Shaoyun Bai in which we rigorously defined t
he integer-valued Gromov-Witten type invariants in genus zero for a symple
ctic manifold. This talk is based on the preprint https://arxiv.org/abs/22

DESCRIPTION:Title: Locality and deformations in relative symplectic cohomology\nby
Yoel Groman (HUJI) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nRelative
symplectic cohomology is a Floer theoretic invariant associated with compa
ct subsets K of a closed or geometrically bounded symplectic manifold M. T
he motivation for studying it is that it is often possible to reduce the s
tudy of global Floer theory of M to the Floer theory of a handful of local
models covering M which one hopes will be easier to compute (Varolgunes
’ spectral sequence). As an example\, it is expected that at least in th
e setting of the Gross-Siebert program\, the mirror can be pieced together
from the relative symplectic cohomologies of neighborhoods of fibers of a
n SYZ fibration (singular or not). However\, even when K is a well underst
ood model\, such as the Weinstein neighborhood of a Lagrangian torus\, the
construction of relative SH is rather unwieldy. In particular\, it is not
entirely obvious how to relate the symplectic cohomology of K relative to
M with Floer theoretic invariants intrinsic to K. I will discuss a number
of results\, most of them in preparation\, which aim to alleviate this di
fficulty in the setting Lagrangian torus fibrations with singularities. Pa
rtly joint with U. Varolgunes.\n

\n\nAbstract\nPierre-Alexandre Mailhot (UdeM)\n\nTitle: The spectral diame
ter of a Liouville domains and its applications\n\nAbstract: The spectral
norm provides a lower bound to the Hofer norm. It is thus natural to ask w
hether the diameter of the spectral norm is finite or not. During this sho
rt talk\, I will give a sketch of the proof that\, in the case of Liouvill
e domains\, the spectral diameter is finite if and only if the symplectic
cohomology of the underlying manifold vanishes. With that relationship in
hand\, we will explore applications to symplecticaly aspherical symplectic
manifolds and Hofer geometry.\n\nNicole Magill (Cornell)\n\nTitle: A corr
espondence between obstructions and constructions for staircases in Hirzeb
ruch surfaces\n\nAbstract: The ellipsoidal embedding function of a symplec
tic four manifold M measures how much the symplectic form on M must be dil
ated in order for it to admit an embedded ellipsoid of some eccentricity.
It generalizes the Gromov width and ball packing numbers. In most cases\,
finitely many obstructions besides the volume determine the function. If t
here are infinitely many obstructions determining the function\, M is said
to have an infinite staircase. This talk will give a classification of wh
ich Hirzebruch surfaces have infinite staircases. We will focus on explain
ing the correspondence between the obstructions coming from exceptional cl
asses and the constructions from almost toric fibrations. We define a way
to mutate triples of exceptional classes to produce new triples of excepti
onal classes\, which corresponds to mutations in almost toric fibrations.
This is based on various joint work with Dusa McDuff\, Ana Rita Pires\, an
d Morgan Weiler.\n\nOfir Karin (Tel Aviv)\n\nTitle: Approximation of Gener
ating Function Barcode for HamiltonianDiffeomorphisms\n\nAbstract: Persist
ence modules and barcodes are used in symplectic topology to define new in
variants of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms\, however methods that explicitly
calculate these barcodes are often unclear. In this talk I will define one
such invariant called the GF-barcode of compactly supported Hamiltonian d
iffeomorphisms of $\\mathbb R^{2n}$ by applying Morse theory to generating
functions quadratic at infinity associated to such Hamiltonian diffeomorp
hisms and provide an algorithm (i.e a finite sequence of explicit calculat
ion steps) that approximates it along with a few computation examples. Thi
s is joint work with Pazit Haim-Kislev.\n

examples of such domains in dimension four\, and then explain how they fit
into a general construction based on Anosov flows on three-manifolds. The
symplectic invariants of these “Anosov Liouville domains” constitute
new invariants of Anosov flows. The algebraic structure of their wrapped F
ukaya categories is in stark contrast with the Weinstein case.\n\nThis is

le: Hyperbolicity of periodic points of Hamiltonian maps\n\nAbstract:\nThe
basic invariant of a fixed point of a Hamiltonian diffeomorphism\, beside
s its existence (which is implied by the proven Arnol'd Conjecture)\, is t
he number of eigenvalues of unit norm of the linearization of the map at t
he fixed point. When there are no such eigenvalues\, the fixed point is sa

namics from the contrasting partially elliptic case. In this talk\, I will
discuss how period doubling bifurcations can be used to make periodic poi
nts purely hyperbolic without appreciably changing Floer-theoretic invaria
nts. Via a limiting process one can approximate Hamiltonian diffeomorphism
s by hameomorphisms which behave as if they have only hyperbolic periodic
points. We will review the dynamical background for such constructions\, a

periodic points of these hameomorphisms\n

is stable under perturbations that are sufficiently small with respect to

ts and links in 3-manifolds\n\nAbstract: Powerful homology invariants of k
nots in 3-manifolds have emerged from both the gauge-theoretic and the sym
plectic kinds of Floer theory: on the gauge-theoretic side is the instanto
n knot homology of Kronheimer-Mrowka\, and on the symplectic the (Heegaard
) knot Floer homology developed independently by Ozsváth-Szabó and by Ra
smussen. These theories are conjecturally equivalent\, but a precise conne
ction between the gauge-theoretic and symplectic sides here remains to be
understood. We describe a construction designed to translate singular inst
anton knot homology more directly into the symplectic domain\, a so-called
symplectic instanton knot homology: We define a Lagrangian Floer homology
invariant of knots and links which extends a 3-manifold invariant develop
ed by H. Horton. The construction proceeds by using specialized Heegaard d
iagrams to parametrize an intersection of traceless $SU(2)$ character vari
eties. The latter is in fact an intersection of Lagrangians in a symplecti

ween closed Gromov-Witten invariants of a space $X$\, and period integrals
of a family $Y$. One of the predictions of Homological Mirror Symmetry is
that the closed Gromov-Witten invariants can be obtained from the Fukaya
category. For Calabi-Yau varieties this has been demonstrated by Ganatra-P
erutz-Sheridan. Recently\, enumerative mirror symmetry has been extended\,
by including open Gromov-Witten invariants and extended period integrals.
It is natural to expect that open Gromov-Witten invariants can be obtaine
d from the Fukaya category. In this talk I will outline a construction whi
ch will demonstrate this for certain open Gromov-Witten invariants.\n\nPat

n\nAbstract\nBrayan Ferreira (IMPA)\n\nTitle: Gromov width of disk cotange
nt bundles of spheres of revolution\n\nAbstract: The question of whether a
Symplectic manifold embeds into another is central in Symplectic topology
. Since Gromov nonsqueezing theorem\, it is known that this is a different
problem from volume preserving embeddings. Symplectic capacities are inva
riants that give obstructions to symplectic embeddings. The first example
of a symplectic capacity is given by the Gromov width\, which measures the
biggest ball that can be symplectically embedded into a symplectic manifo
ld. In this talk\, we are going to discuss the Gromov width for the exampl
e of disk cotangent bundles of spheres of revolution. The main results are
for the Zoll cases and for the case of ellipsoids of revolution. The main
tools are action angle coordinates (Arnold-Liouville theorem) and ECH cap
acities. This is joint work with Alejandro Vicente and Vinicius Ramos.\n\n

mology\n\nAbstract: The formula introduced by Robert Lipshitz for Heegaard
Floer homology is now one of the basic tools for those working with HF ho
mology. The convenience of the formula is due to its combinatorial nature.
In the talk\, we will discuss the recent combinatorial proof of this form
ula.\n\nAmanda Hirschi (Cambridge)\n\nTitle: Global Kuranishi charts for G
romov-Witten moduli spaces and a product formula\n\nAbstract: I will descr
ibe the construction of a global Kuranishi chart for moduli spaces of stab
le pseudoholomorphic maps of any genus and explain how this allows for a s
traightforward definition of GW invariants. For those not convinced of its
usefulness\, I will sketch how this can be used to obtain a formula for t
he GW invariants of a product. This is joint work with Mohan Swaminathan.\

act\nA symplectic embedding of a disjoint union of domains into a symplect
ic manifold M is said to be of Kahler type (respectively tame) if it is ho
lomorphic with respect to some (not a priori fixed) integrable complex str
ucture on M which is compatible with (respectively tamed by) the symplecti
c form. I'll discuss when Kahler-type embeddings of disjoint unions of bal
ls into a closed symplectic manifold exist and when two such embeddings ca
n be mapped into each other by a symplectomorphism. If time permits\, I'll
also discuss the existence of tame embeddings of balls\, polydisks and pa
rallelepipeds into tori and K3 surfaces.\n\nThis is a joint work with M.Ve

as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nDonaldson-Thomas (DT) invar
iants of a quiver with potential can be expressed in terms of simpler attr

k with Arguz (arXiv:2302.02068)\, we prove that these coefficients are gen
us 0 log Gromov-Witten invariants of d-dimensional toric varieties\, where
d is the number of vertices of the quiver. This result follows from a log
-tropical correspondence theorem which relates (d-2)-dimensional families
of tropical curves obtained as universal deformations of attractor flow tr

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Toda lattice\, billiards and the Viterbo conjecture\nby Vin
icius Ramos (IMPA) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAbstract\nAbstract:
\nThe Toda lattice is one of the earliest examples of non-linear completel
y integrable systems. Under a large deformation\, the Hamiltonian flow can
be seen to converge to a billiard flow in a simplex. In the 1970s\, actio
n-angle coordinates were computed for the standard system using a non-cano
nical transformation and some spectral theory. In this talk\, I will expla
in how to adapt these coordinates to the situation of a large deformation
and how this leads to new examples of symplectomorphisms of Lagrangian pro
ducts with toric domains. In particular\, we find a sequence of Lagrangian
products whose symplectic systolic ratio is one and we prove that they ar
e symplectic balls. This is joint work with Y. Ostrover and D. Sepe.\n

truct naturally appear in a two-parameter family\, some of which are no

a knot or link K in the three-sphere\, we construct a spectrum whose homo
logy is the knot Floer homology of K. We conjecture that the homotopy type
of the spectrum is an invariant of K. Our construction does not use holom
orphic geometry\, but rather builds on the combinatorial definition of gri
d homology. We inductively define models for the moduli spaces of pseudo-h
olomorphic strips and disk bubbles\, and patch them together into a framed
flow category. The inductive step relies on the vanishing of an obstructi
on class that takes values in a complex of positive domains with partition
s. (This is joint work with Sucharit Sarkar.)\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: $C^0$ stability of topological entropy for 3-dimensional Reeb flows
\nby Matthias Meiwes (Tel Aviv) as part of Symplectic zoominar\n\n\nAb
stract\nThe $C^0$ distance on the space of contact forms on a contact mani
fold has been studied recently by different authors. It can be thought of
as an analogue for Reeb flows of the Hofer metric on the space of Hamilton
ian diffeomorphisms. In this talk\, I will explain some recent progress on
the stability properties of the topological entropy with respect to this
distance obtained in collaboration with M. Alves\, L. Dahinden\, and A. Pi
rnapasov. Our main result states that the topological entropy for closed c
ontact 3-manifolds is lower semi-continuous in the $C^0$ distance for $C^{
\\infty}$-generic contact froms. Applying our methods to geodesic flows of
surfaces\, we obtain that the points of lower-semicontinuity of the topol
ogical entropy include non-degenerate metrics. In particular\, given a geo
desic flow of such a metric with positive topological entropy\, the topol
ogical entropy does not vanish for sufficiently $C^0$-small perturbations
of the metric.\n
