Topology is the study of shapes and spaces. What happens if one allows geometric objects to be stretched or squeezed but not broken? In fact there’s quite a bit of structure in what remains, which is the principal subject of study in topology. The modern field of topology draws from a diverse collection of core areas of mathematics. Much of basic topology is most profitably. Detecting tightness via open book decompositions Geometry & Topology Monographs 19 (), Abstract: This article is an expository overview of work by the author characterizing tightness of a closed contact 3-manifold in terms of arbitrary open book decompositions thereof. The intent is to provide a `user's guide' of the theory.

This volume contains the proceedings of the conference, which includes survey and research articles concerning such areas as knot theory, contact and symplectic topology, 3-manifold theory, geometric group theory, and equivariant topology.

I am interested in all areas of low-dimensional Topology. More specifically, I am interested in trisections of smooth 4-manifolds (with and without boundary), generic maps and Lefschetz fibrations on 4-manifolds, symplectic and contact topology, open book decompositions of 3-manifolds, and anything to do with Heegaard splittings of 3-manifolds.

low–dimensional topology. In part, the hope was to foster dialogue across closely related disciplines, some of which were developing in relative isolation until fairly recently. The lectures centered on several topics, including Heegaard Floer theory, knot theory, symplectic and contact topology, and Seiberg–Witten theory.

The interaction between gauge theory, low-dimensional topology, and symplectic geometry has led to a number of striking new developments in these fields.

Since then, both symplectic and contact topology have become very robust fields of study in their own right. The aim of this session will be to highlight techniques and recent results in the areas of low-dimensional symplectic Low-dimensional and symplectic topology book contact topology ranging from applications in knot theory to the theory of planar arrangements and singularities.

Introduction Contactgeometryhasbeen akeytoolin manyrecentadvancesin low-dimensional topology. This first volume is essentially devoted to what the first words of the book’s title convey, i.e. topology in a symplectic context. We discern that we have here one of those marvels of modern geometry in the large sense, as it were: the interplay between physics, differential geometry, and.

Everything about Low dimensional topology. I would open something like an introductory Low-dimensional and symplectic topology book mechanics book and they would just lay out the mathematical formulation of things without giving any (or, I guess, not satisfactory) motivation about it.

Ah, so you're going to be writing about symplectic structures, or something of that sort. The main focus of this workshop will be on holomorphic curve techniques in low-dimensional topology and symplectic geometry. The workshop is a part of the FRG: Collaborative Research: Topology and Invariants of Smooth 4-Manifolds.

It is funded by NSF Focused Research Grant DMS This volume is based on lecture courses and seminars given at the LMS Durham Symposium on the geometry of low-dimensional manifolds.

This area has been one of intense research recently, with major breakthroughs that have illuminated the way a number of different subjects interact (for example: topology, differential and algebraic geometry and mathematical physics). by the ESF Research Networking Programme "Contact And Symplectic Topology" (CAST).

The lectures of the Summer School in Nantes (June ) and of the CAST Summer School in Budapest (July ) provide a nice panorama of many aspects of the present status of contact and symplectic topology.

Symplectic 4-manifolds and Lefschetz fibrations [video] In the survery we review the basic features of symplectic 4-manifolds which are relevant in the study of mapping class groups. We list some problems which can be verified using methods coming from symplectic topology and show how theorems of, say, Seiberg-Witten theory can be applied in.

In mathematics, Floer homology is a tool for studying symplectic geometry and low-dimensional homology is a novel invariant that arises as an infinite-dimensional analogue of finite-dimensional Morse homology.

Andreas Floer introduced the first version of Floer homology, now called Lagrangian Floer homology, in his proof of the Arnold conjecture in symplectic geometry. The UCL Geometry and Topology Group is part of the UCL Mathematics Department.
