Summer school on Donaldson hypersurfaces (in Topological, Symplectic and Contact Spring in Toulouse)
Month: June 2013
Date: June 17--21
Name: Summer school on Donaldson hypersurfaces (in Topological, Symplectic and Contact Spring in Toulouse)
Location: La Llagonne, France.
The aim of this summer school is the study of Donaldson's construction of symplectic hypersurfaces and Lefschetz pencils. During the morning sessions, the sections of Donaldson's original papers will be explained by participants. The afternoons are dedicated to ramifications of these techniques in contact geometry (open books techniques) and symplectic geometry (through the study of Lagrangian submanifolds from the Lagrangian cobordism point of view): Emmanuel Giroux (ENS de Lyon) will give lectures about applications to contact geometry. Octav Cornea (Université de Montréal) will present Lagrangian cobordisms and Fukaya category.
