Title:C^0 rigidity of the Poisson brackets and hamiltonian pseudo-representations, I
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Augustin Banyaga, PSU
Abstract:
This series of talks will present some recent work of Humiliere, Entov-Polterovich and Buhovski, on the C^0 deformation of the Poisson bracket on a symplectic manifold. Among others, we will discuss Humiliere's hamiltonian pseudo representations, and his proof of the non-existence of Hofer metrics on the group of hamitonian diffeomorphisms with unrestricted support, and his proof of the Gromov-Eliashberg rigidity theorem.
