“Legendrian Topology and its Applications”

Special Seminar

Come join us Monday January 29, 2018 at 12 pm in RM 507, Professor Roger Casals(University College London, Topology) will be giving a special lecture about “Legendrian Topology and its Applications”.


This is an invitation to contact geometry and its applications. First, I will introduce Legendrian submanifolds and explain new ways of using them to understand complex affine manifolds. Then I will present current progress in the study of higher-dimensional Legendrains which connects to combinatorics, via the study of planar graphs, and gauge theory, through moduli spaces of flat connections.
