### Composition of coproduct and product in Lagrangian Floer (co)homology

Let's take a Riemann surface $\Sigma$ and three Lagrangians $L_0,L_1,L_2$ in general position. let's assume that we can set up Lagrangian Floer (co)homology - Here I'm being vague because I don't want ...

### How to find equations of a sub-Riemannian problem

I am working on sub-Riemannian geometry and try to understand what are the tools to find the equations of a sub-Riemannian problem. Here is an example: Let us consider the system defined by a ...

### Books and References on Geometry of Submanifold [closed]

In this semester I want to study Geometry of Submanifolds. I know Chen Bang Yen's book: Geometry of submanifolds, but it is too hard to read since its strange print. Can people recommend textbooks and/...

### Lagrangian Floer (co)homology, Novikov coverings and exact symplectic manifolds

I started reading the book "Lagrangian intersection Floer theory anomaly and obstruction", and there are a couple of details and assumptions in the definition of the Novikov covering that I ...

### What is the significance of a Lagrangian Submanifold and what are the implications of the symplectic form being zero?

I'd like to understand better the relevance of Lagrangian submanifolds in Hamiltonian Mechanics. A Lagrangian Manifold is defined as a submanifold of a symplectic manifold upon which the restriction ...

### Displacing a conormal Lagrangian from the zero section

I was told that the conormal bundle $\nu^*K$ of a knot $K\subset S^3$ can be displaced from the zero section $0_{S^3}$ in $T^*S^3.$ Having no intuition about whether/how often this happens in general, ...

### Two possible meanings of "totally real" submanifold

It seems that there are two common meanings for a submanifold of an almost-complex Riemannnian manifold to be "totally real": one says that the almost-complex structure takes the tangent ...

### Viterbo restriction map surjective on Weinstein neighbourhood

In a Liouville manifold $M$ having a Liouville subdomain $i: N \hookrightarrow M$, there is the so-called Viterbo restriction map in symplectic cohomology $$SH^*(i): SH^*(M)\rightarrow SH^*(N).$$ In ...

### Lagrangian intersection Floer homology: understanding some assumptions

Let $(X,\omega)$ be a symplectic manifold and $L\subset X$ be a Lagrangian subspace. Let $\mu_L:H_2(X,L;\mathbb{Z})\to \mathbb{Z}$ be the Maslov index homomorphism. Usual hypothesis Recall that $L$...

### Why are Lagrangian subspaces in a symplectic vector space interesting?

A subspace in a symplectic vector space could be one of two extremes: either symplectic (meaning the form is nondegenerate there) or Lagrangian. Or it could be something between the two, meaning a ...

### A clarification in the definition of Seidel's absolute Maslov index for a pair of transverse Lagrangians

I'm reading Seidel's paper Graded Lagrangian submanifolds where he introduces the absolute Maslov index of a pair of graded lagrangians as follows: Let $\mathcal{L}(V,\beta)$ be the Lagrangian ...

### Lagrangian subgroup of a nonabelian Lie group

My post here concerns the concept of Lagrangian subgroup for a non-abelian Lie group, such as a semi-simple non-abelian Lie group for gauge theory. See a previous post for other background ...

### Lagrangian subgroups/submanifolds, 2d topological boundary and 3d "non-abelian" Chern–Simons theory

This post is meant to ask for proper references to fill a gap in the literature. My short question is that are there known and precise ways to formulate 2d topological boundary conditions" for ...

### Local deformations of Lagrangian submanifolds in holomorphic symplectic manifold and their intersections

Let $Y\subset X$ be a Lagrangian submanifold in a holomorphic symplectic manifold $X$. We know that there exists a local moduli space $M$, which parametrizes lagrangian submanifolds in $X$(there are ...

### Shape of the bubbling limit of holomorphic discs

I will present my question in the specifics I encountered it, so maybe some of the details are irrelevant for the desired conclusion. Consider $(S^2\times S^2,\omega_{std})$ the product of two ...

### What's the geometric statement of this fibrewise integration on a symplectic manifold with Lagrangian fibration?

I understand this statement from the physics side. Consider an $n-$dimensional manifold $\cal M$ ("configuration space") and its cotangent bundle ${\cal P} = T^*\cal M$ ("phase space"), a symplectic ...

### Lagrangian Kleinian bottles

I remember some talks some time ago about proofs of nonexistence of Lagrangian Kleinian bottles in ${\mathbb C}^2$ for the standard symplectic structure, mentioning that this were the only compact ...
