Let $\hat{G}$ be a group and $G$ its normal subgroup. In this paper, we study $\hat{G}$-invariant quasimorphisms on $G$ which appear in symplectic geometry and low dimensional topology. As its application, we prove the non-existence of a section of the flux homomorphism on closed surfaces of higher genus. We also prove that Py's Calabi quasimorphism and Entov-Polterovich's partial Calabi quasimorphism are non-extendable to the group of symplectomorphisms. We show that Py's Calabi quasimorphism… Expand

Extensions of quasi-morphisms to the symplectomorphism group of the disk
On the group $\rm{Symp}(D, \partial D)$ of symplectomorphisms of the disk which are the identity near the boundary, there are homogeneous quasi-morphisms called the Ruelle invariant and Gambaudo-GhysExpand
Bavard's duality theorem of invariant quasimorphisms
Let $H$ be a normal subgroup of a group $G$. A quasimorphism $f$ on $H$ is $G$-invariant if there is a non-negative number $D$ satisfying $|f(gxg^{-1}) - f(x)| \le D$ for every $g \in G$ and every $xExpand


Quasi-morphisms on the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-disk
Recently Gambaudo and Ghys proved that there exist infinitely many quasi-morphisms on the group ${\rm Diff}_\Omega^\infty (D^2, \partial D^2)$ of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-disk $D^2$.Expand
Calabi quasimorphism and quantum homology
We prove that the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-sphere admits a non-trivial homogeneous quasimorphism to the real numbers with the following property. Its value on anyExpand
Aut-invariant norms and Aut-invariant quasimorphisms on free and surface groups
Let $F_n$ be the free group on $n$ generators and $\Gamma_g$ the surface group of genus $g$. We consider two particular generating sets: the set of all primitive elements in $F_n$ and the set of allExpand
Partial quasi-morphisms and quasi-states on cotangent bundles, and symplectic homogenization
For a closed connected manifold N, we construct a family of functions on the Hamiltonian group G of the cotangent bundle T^*N, and a family of functions on the space of smooth functions with compactExpand
Commutators and diffeomorphisms of surfaces
For any compact oriented surface $\Sigma$ we consider the group of diffeomorphisms of $\Sigma$ which preserve a given area form. In this paper we show that the vector space of homogeneousExpand
Rigid subsets of symplectic manifolds
Abstract We show that there is an hierarchy of intersection rigidity properties of sets in a closed symplectic manifold: some sets cannot be displaced by symplectomorphisms from more sets than theExpand
Bi-invariant metrics and quasi-morphisms on groups of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of surfaces
Let \Sigma_g be a closed orientable surface let Diff_0(\Sigma_g; area) be the identity component of the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of \Sigma_g. In this work we present an extension ofExpand
Spectral Invariants with Bulk, Quasi-Morphisms and Lagrangian Floer Theory
In this paper we first develop various enhancements of the theory of spectral invariants of Hamiltonian Floer homology and of Entovi-Polterovich theory of spectral symplectic quasi-states andExpand
In this paper, we give two elementary constructions of homogeneous quasi-morphisms defined on the group of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of certain closed connected symplectic manifolds (or on itsExpand
The main purpose of this paper is to carry out some of the foundational study of $C^0$-Hamiltonian geometry and $C^0$-symplectic topology. We introduce the notions of the strong and the weak {\itExpand
