Title:A framework for generalizing pseudoholomorphic invariants
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Aaron Smith, University of Pennsylvania
Abstract:
I will discuss recent work towards developing a framework which generalizes the theory of pseudoholomorphic curves.  Ultimately this is a description of a theory of maps satisfying a particular PDE describing the intertwining of geometric structures on the domain and target manifolds.  Such maps carry topological data and minimize a related energy functional.  This topic is closely related to calibrated geometry, exceptional holonomy, and the theory of quasi-regular mappings.
