TITLE: Spectral Invariants on Cotangent Bundles and Applications
 
ABSTRACT:
I'm going to define certain functionals on the Hamiltonian group and on
the set of compactly supported continuous functions of a cotangent bundle
(for a wide class of bases), starting from spectral invariants arising
from Lagrangian Floer homology. These functionals generalize Viterbo's
symplectic homogenization, and yield more or less standard applications to
bounded cohomology, Hofer's geometry, Aubry-Mather theory and symplectic
rigidity.
