Joint IAS-PU Symplectic Geometry Seminar | |

Topic: | Morse Theory and Invariants of (almost) Symplectic Manifolds |

Speaker: | Tara Holm |

Affiliation: | Cornell University |

Date: | Friday, November 18 |

Time/Room: | 4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine Hall -- Room 322 |

I will discuss two of my current projects which have different aims but use similar techniques. The first aims to understand the equivariant K-theory of symplectic orbifolds. The second is about the topology of toric origami manifolds. Neither space is a symplectic manifold, but each is almost.
