Title:Length minimizing paths in Ham(M,\omega).
Seminar:Topology/Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Peter Spaeth, Penn State
We will discuss the Hofer and spectral geometry of the Hamiltonian diffeomorphism group of any closed symplectic manifold. Many authors have worked in this area, and the goal of the lecture will be to discuss the scope of this problem and recent results. Attention will be paid to the Floer theoretical side of the story.
