Tel Aviv University Hello everyone, The last colloquium talk for this semester will be held on: Monday, 17/6/2013, 12:15, Schreiber 006, Tel Aviv University. Speaker: Frédéric Bourgeois (Université Libre de Bruxelles) Title: On the geography of Legendrian submanifolds The abstract is given below. Tea and coffee at 12:00, same room. Hope to see you there. For information about future colloquia, see <http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~ostrover/colloquium/colloq2012.html> Yours, Yaron ************************************* Abstract: Legendrian submanifolds are remarkable objects in contact geometry. Their study generalizes topological knot theory. Many Legendrian submanifolds can be described using generating families. This tool can also be used to define invariants for Legendrian submanifolds. We shall describe the construction of Legendrian submanifolds having all possible prescribed values for these invariants. This is a joint work with Josh Sabloff and Lisa Traynor. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: <ostrover@post.tau.ac.il>
