Introduction to the Basics of Heegaard Floer HomologyIntroduction to the Basics of Heegaard Floer Homology
by Bijan Sahamie - arXiv
This is an introduction to the basics of Heegaard Floer homology with some emphasis on the hat theory and to the contact geometric invariants in the theory. It is designed to be comprehensible to people without any prior knowledge of the subject.
Introduction to Symplectic Field TheoryIntroduction to Symplectic Field Theory
by Y. Eliashberg, A. Givental, H. Hofer - arXiv
We sketch in this article a new theory, which we call Symplectic Field Theory or SFT, which provides an approach to Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic manifolds and their Lagrangian submanifolds in the spirit of topological field theory.
First Steps Towards a Symplectic DynamicsFirst Steps Towards a Symplectic Dynamics
by Barney Bramham, Helmut Hofer - arXiv
Both dynamical systems and symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems and symplectic ideas come together.
Symplectic Geometry of Quantum NoiseSymplectic Geometry of Quantum Noise
by Leonid Polterovich - arXiv
We discuss a quantum counterpart of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from 'hard' symplectic geometry. They can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables and their joint measurements in operational quantum mechanics.
