Finite Energy Foliations and Connect Sums

Princeton/IAS Symplectic Geometry Seminar
Topic:Finite Energy Foliations and Connect Sums
Speaker:Joel Fish
Affiliation:Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Friday, October 11
Time/Room:1:30pm - 2:30pm/Fine 322, Princeton University

I will present some recent joint work with Richard Siefring on the behavior of finite energy foliations under the action of a 0-surgery (i.e. a connect sum) and a 2-surgery. We will then discuss applications to the restricted three body problem.
