3-Manifold Seminar: Symplectic structures on representation varieties of surfaces and Hamiltonian actions.
Seminar | September 25 | 2:10-3:30 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall
Ian Agol, UC BERKELEY
We'll continue to discuss the symplectic structure on representation varieties of surfaces after Goldman (and Atiyah-Bott). Then we'll discuss certain Hamiltonian actions on subsets determined by twists along simple curves.
