Introduction to the h-principle by Y Eliashberg( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In differential geometry and topology one often deals with systems of partial differential equations, as well as partial differential inequalities, that have infinitely many solutions whatever boundary conditions are imposed. It was discovered in the fifties that the solvability of differential relations (i.e. equations and inequalities) of this kind can often be reduced to a problem of a purely homotopy-theoretic nature. One says in this case that the corresponding differential relation satisfies the $h$-principle. Two famous examples of the $h$-principle, the Nash-Kuiper $C^1$-isometric embedding theory in Riemannian geometry and the Smale-Hirsch immersion theory in differential topology, were later transformed by Gromov into powerful general methods for establishing the $h$-principle. The authors cover two main methods for proving the $h$-principle: holonomic approximation and convex integration. The reader will find that, with a few notable exceptions, most instances of the $h$-principle can be treated by the methods considered here. A special emphasis in the book is made on applications to symplectic and contact geometry. Gromov's famous book ``Partial Differential Relations'', which is devoted to the same subject, is an encyclopedia of the $h$-principle, written for experts, while the present book is the first broadly accessible exposition of the theory and its applications. The book would be an excellent text for a graduate course on geometric methods for solving partial differential equations and inequalities. Geometers, topologists and analysts will also find much value in this very readable exposition of an important and remarkable topic

Different faces of geometry by S. K Donaldson( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Different Faces of Geometry - edited by the world renowned geometers S. Donaldson, Ya. Eliashberg, and M. Gromov - presents the current state, new results, original ideas and open questions from the following important topics in modern geometry: Amoebas and Tropical Geometry Convex Geometry and Asymptotic Geometric Analysis Differential Topology of 4-Manifolds 3-Dimensional Contact Geometry Floer Homology and Low-Dimensional Topology Khler Geometry Lagrangian and Special Lagrangian Submanifolds Refined Seiberg-Witten Invariants. These apparently diverse topics have a common feature in that they are all areas of exciting current activity. The Editors have attracted an impressive array of leading specialists to author chapters for this volume: G. Mikhalkin (USA-Canada-Russia), V.D. Milman (Israel) and A.A. Giannopoulos (Greece), C. LeBrun (USA), Ko Honda (USA), P. Ozsvth (USA) and Z. Szab (USA), C. Simpson (France), D. Joyce (UK) and P. Seidel (USA), and S. Bauer (Germany). "One can distinguish various themes running through the different contributions. There is some emphasis on invariants defined by elliptic equations and their applications in low-dimensional topology, symplectic and contact geometry (Bauer, Seidel, Ozsvth and Szab). These ideas enter, more tangentially, in the articles of Joyce, Honda and LeBrun. Here and elsewhere, as well as explaining the rapid advances that have been made, the articles convey a wonderful sense of the vast areas lying beyond our current understanding. Simpson's article emphasizes the need for interesting new constructions (in that case of Khler and algebraic manifolds), a point which is also made by Bauer in the context of 4-manifolds and the "11/8 conjecture". LeBrun's article gives another perspective on 4-manifold theory, via Riemannian geometry, and the challenging open questions involving the geometry of even "well-known" 4-manifolds. There are also striking contrasts between the articles. The authors have taken different approaches: for example, the thoughtful essay of Simpson, the new research results of LeBrun and the thorough expositions with homework problems of Honda. One can also ponder the differences in the style of mathematics. In the articles of Honda, Giannopoulos and Milman, and Mikhalkin, the "geometry" is present in a very vivid and tangible way; combining respectively with topology, analysis and algebra. The papers of Bauer and Seidel, on the other hand, makes the point that algebraic and algebro-topological abstraction (triangulated categories, spectra) can play an important role in very unexpected ways in concrete geometric problems."--The Preface by the Editors

Filtered floer and symplectic homology via Gromov-Witten theory by Luís Miguel Pereira De Matos Geraldes Diogo( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We describe a procedure for computing Floer and symplectic homology groups, with action filtration and algebraic operations, in a class of examples. Namely, we consider closed monotone symplectic manifolds with smooth symplectic divisors, Poincaré dual to a positive multiple of the symplectic form. We express the Floer homology of the manifold and the symplectic homology of the complement of the divisor, for a special class of Hamiltonians, in terms of absolute and relative Gromov--Witten invariants, and some additional Morse-theoretic information. As an application, we compute the symplectic homology rings of cotangent bundles of spheres, and compare our results with an earlier computation in string topology
A new construction of virtual fundamental cycles in symplectic geometry by John Vincent Pardon( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We develop techniques for defining and working with virtual fundamental cycles on moduli spaces of pseudo-holomorphic curves which are not necessarily cut out transversally. Such techniques have the potential for applications as foundations for invariants in symplectic topology arising from "counting" pseudo-holomorphic curves. We introduce the notion of an implicit atlas on a moduli space, which is (roughly) a convenient system of local finite-dimensional reductions. We present a general intrinsic strategy for constructing a canonical implicit atlas on any moduli space of pseudo-holomorphic curves. The main technical step in applying this strategy in any particular setting is to prove appropriate gluing theorems. We require only topological gluing theorems, that is, smoothness of the transition maps between gluing charts need not be addressed. Our approach to virtual fundamental cycles is algebraic rather than geometric (in particular, we do not use perturbation). Sheaf-theoretic tools play an important role in setting up our functorial algebraic "VFC package". We illustrate the methods we introduce by giving definitions of Gromov--Witten invariants and Hamiltonian Floer homology over $\QQ$ for general symplectic manifolds. Our framework generalizes to the $S^1$-equivariant setting, and we use $S^1$-localization to calculate Hamiltonian Floer homology. The Arnold conjecture (as treated by Floer, Hofer--Salamon, Ono, Liu--Tian, Ruan, and Fukaya--Ono) is a well-known corollary of this calculation. We give a construction of contact homology in the sense of Eliashberg--Givental--Hofer. Specifically, we use implicit atlases to construct coherent virtual fundamental cycles on the relevant compactified moduli spaces of holomorphic curves
On symplectic homology of the complement of a positive normal crossing divisor in a projective variety by Khoa Lu Nguyen( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation studies how symplectic homology of the complement of the smooth zero set $D$ of a section of a positive line bundle $\cL$ over a projective variety $(X, J)$ changes as $D$ degenerates to a normal crossing divisor $D_{\mbox{sing}}$ with two smooth connected components. By analyzing the pluri-subharmonic functions obtained from a metric on $\cL$, we show that the change in the Weinstein structure of the complement is characterized by handle removals along the unstable submanifolds of critical points in a small neighborhood of the set of singular points of $D_{\mbox{sing}}.$ Parallel to work by Bourgeois-Eckholm-Eliashberg (\cite{BEE}), we construct a chain complex from the removed unstable submanifolds such that its homology completes the Viterbo transfer map in a long exact sequence. The effect of divisor degeneration on symplectic homology of the complement is then essentially reflected by the $A_\infty$ structure of a collection of Lagrangian spheres on $D$, which are the boundary at infinity of the removed unstable submanifolds

Orientability of moduli spaces and open Gromov-Witten invariants by Penka Vasileva Georgieva( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We show that the local system of orientations on the moduli space of J-holomorphic maps from a bordered Riemann surface is isomorphic to the pull-back of a local system defined on the product of the Lagrangian and its free loop space. The latter is defined using only the first and second Stiefel-Whitney classes of the Lagrangian. In the presence of an anti-symplectic involution, whose fixed locus is a relatively spin Lagrangian, we define open Gromov-Witten type invariants in genus zero
