    We study vortex equations with a parameter $s$ on smooth vector bundles $E$ over compact K\"ahler manifolds $M$. For each $s$, we invoke techniques in \cite{Br} by turning vortex equations into the elliptic partial ...

    Given a $G$-toric, folded-symplectic manifold with co-orientable folding hypersurface, we show that its orbit space is naturally a manifold with corners $W$ equipped with a smooth map $\psi: W \to \frak{g}^*$, where ...

  • Morton, Daniel (2012-02-06)
    A GKM manifold is a symplectic manifold with a torus action such that the fixed points are isolated and the isotropy weights at the fixed points are linearly independent. Each GKM manifold has a GKM graph which contains ...

  • Wong, Yat Sen (2014-09-16)
    This thesis covers four results: 1. We prove an analog of Whitney's embedding theorem for J-holomorphic discs. 2. For zj = xj + i*yj in C and let D_R^2 = {(z1, z2) in C^2 : x1^2 + x2^2 <1, y1^2 + y2^2 < 1} be the real ...

    We utilize Floer theory and an index relation relating the Maslov index, Morse index and Conley-Zehnder index for a periodic orbit of the flow of a specific Hamiltonian function to state and prove some nonexistence results ...

  • Jang, Donghoon (2015-04-07)
    Consider a symplectic circle action on a closed symplectic manifold $M$ with non-empty isolated fixed points. Associated to each fixed point, there are well-defined non-zero integers, called \emph{weights}. We prove that ...

  • Michiels, Daan (2018-04-09)
    This thesis treats two main topics: calibrated symplectic foliations, and local Lie groupoids. Calibrated symplectic foliations are one possible generalization of taut foliations of 3-manifolds to higher dimensions. Their ...

  • Wolbert, Seth P (2017-07-05)
    We provide a classification of two types of toric objects: symplectic toric cones and symplectic toric stratified spaces with isolated singularities. Both types of object are classified via orbital moment map and a second ...
