Yaron Ostrover - Research

Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

My primary areas of interest are symplectic geometry and Hamiltonian dynamics.
In particular, I am interested the geometry of the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms, Floer and quantum homology, billiards dynamics, interaction between symplectic and convex geometry, asymptotic geometric analysis, and the theory of symplectic measurements.
