Title:Morse-Bott homology, I.
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:David Hurtubise(PSU)
Abstract: In this series of talks I will outline recent work with A. Banyaga on the construction of a chain complex associated to a Morse-Bott function meeting certain transversality conditions. This chain complex reduces to the Morse-Smale-Witten complex when the function is Morse-Smale, and it reduces to the chain complex of singular N-cube chains when the function is constant. By showing that the homology of the chain complex is independent of the function we give a new proof of the Morse Homology Theorem.
