Symplectic isotopy problems

 Laura Starkston, UC Davis   

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Tuesday, 11 September 2018 at 1:40PM - 2:40PM

Abstract:  We will discuss some problems and results about symplectic surfaces in 4-manifolds, particularly in the complex projective plane.

The main question is to classify symplectic surfaces up to symplectic isotopy. If the surface has singularities, we restrict the isotopies
to the class of surfaces with the same model singularities.
