Floer theory seminar

UC Berkeley, Fall 2005

Organized by Michael Hutchings

Course control number 55272


This seminar will discuss various aspects of Floer theory, with an emphasis on those versions of Floer theory that count pseudoholomorphic curves in symplectic 4-manifolds. The goal will be to learn something about both analytical foundations and computational techniques. I will begin by giving a few talks on some topics that I am interested in, and other participants are also welcome to give talks. There will also be some extra background lectures.

Spacetime coordinates

The main talks will take place on Thursdays from 5:10 to 6:00 PM in room 891. There will also be a parallel series of background lectures on Mondays from 3:10 to 4:00 PM in room 959, at least at the beginning.
