A Geometric Outlook on Fukaya Categories

We will explain how the concept of Lagrangian cobordism can be used to approach in a geometric way the Fukaya category of a symplectic manifold (a rather abstract, yet central, object of study in modern symplectic topology). We will also explain how to perform geometric measurements in the Fukaya category via cobordisms. The talk is based on a series of joint works with Octav Cornea.
