Symplectic and contact geometry and topology, which provide a natural setting for Hamiltonian dynamics, comprise a broad spectrum of interrelated disciplines in the mainstream of modern mathematics. The past two decades gave rise to several exciting developments in these fields: on one hand, powerful new mathematical tools and concepts were introduced, solving long-standing problems that were previously unattainable; and on the other hand, challenging and exciting new questions arose for future research. Presently, symplectic and contact geometry have connections with an amazingly wide range of areas in mathematics and physics: differential and algebraic geometry, complex analysis, dynamical systems, low-dimensional topology, quantum mechanics, and string theory.


The research program will address a number of cutting-edge research topics of experimental flavor within symplectic topology and related fields such as Hamiltonian dynamics and Quantum mechanics. A special focus will be made on computational aspects of symplectic measurements. Graduate students will be collaborating in teams formed around each project. All graduate students will participate in both sessions of the program: 05/17/2015 - 05/26/2015 in Tel-Aviv, and 07/27/2015 - 08/05/2015 at ICERM. Between the site visits, the teams will continue collaborating remotely via email and video-conferencing.

 


Organizers: 

Richard Hind (University of Notre Dame), Yaron Ostrover (Tel Aviv University), Leonid Polterovich (Tel Aviv University), Michael Usher (University of Georgia).
