Title:A Hofer-like metric and the group of strong symplectic homeomorphisms
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Augustin Banyaga, PSU
Abstract:
We construct a norm on the identity component in the group of symplectic diffeomorphisms whose restriction to the group of hamiltonian diffeomorphisms is bounded from above by the Hofer norm.We define a new group, nicknamed the group of strong symplectic homeomorphisms, which contains as a normal subgroup the group of hamiltonian homeomorphisms of Oh-Muller
