Morse Theory and Invariants of (almost) Symplectic Manifolds

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.
