|Princeton/IAS Symplectic Geometry Seminar|
|Topic:||Stable homotopy theory and Floer theory|
|Date:||Monday, March 21|
|Time/Room:||3:10pm - 4:10pm/S-101|
In this talk I will define and explain some basic notions from stable homotopy theory, and illustrate how it relates to (and refines) the notion of Floer homology in some simple cases. I will also discuss what extra kind of information this refinement contains and describe an explicit situation where it provides a stronger result than the usual homological invariants (joint work with Mohammed Abouzaid).
