Discrete group actions on symplectic manifolds
Jarek Kedra (University of Aberdeen)
Monday 11th January, 2010 16:00-17:00 Mathematics Building, room 204
The talk will mix symplectic geometry and geometric group theory. I will construct and discuss examples of group actions on symplectic manifolds. Then I will sketch a proof of a theorem by Polterovich about restrictions on actions on certain symplectic manifolds.
