Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Computations of the Chekanov-Eliashberg algebra

Seminar | February 20 | 2:10-3 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Georgios Dimitroglou Rizell, Uppsala University

 Department of Mathematics

The Chekanov-Eliashberg algebra is a powerful Legendrian isotopy invariant that is defined by counts of pseudoholomorphic discs. We give an introduction to both analytical and algebraic aspects of the theory, perform calculations in both low and high dimension, and present some open problems.
