# Conformal Symplectic structures, Foliations and Contact Structures

@inproceedings{Bertelson2021ConformalSS, title={Conformal Symplectic structures, Foliations and Contact Structures}, author={M'elanie Bertelson and Ga{\"e}l Meigniez}, year={2021} }

This paper presents two existence h-principles, the first for conformal symplectic structures on closed manifolds, and the second for leafwise conformal symplectic structures on foliated manifolds with non empty boundary. The latter h-principle allows to linearly deform certain codimension-1 foliations to contact structures. These results are essentially applications of the BormanEliashberg-Murphy h-principle for overtwisted contact structures and of the Eliashberg-Murphy symplectization of… Expand

Some properties of locally conformal symplectic structures

Abstract. We show that the
$ d_{\omega} $-cohomology is isomorphic to a conformally invariant usual de Rham cohomology of an appropriate cover. We also prove a Moser theorem for locally conformal… Expand

We prove a version of the Arnol'd conjecture for Lagrangian submanifolds of conformal symplectic manifolds: a Lagrangian $L$ which has non-zero Morse-Novikov homology for the restriction of the Lee… Expand

We establish a parametric extension h-principle for overtwisted contact structures on manifolds of all dimensions, which is the direct generalization of the 3-dimensional result from [12]. It… Expand

On compact manifolds of dimensions 4 and more, we give a proof of Thurston's existence theorem for foliations of codimension one; that is, they satisfy some h-principle in the sense of Gromov. Our… Expand

Pseudo holomorphic curves in symplectic manifolds

- Mathematics

Definitions. A parametrized (pseudo holomorphic) J-curve in an almost complex manifold (IS, J) is a holomorphic map of a Riemann surface into Is, say f : (S, J3 ~(V, J). The image C=f(S)C V is called… Expand

Morse structures on open books

We use parameterized Morse theory on the pages of an open book decomposition to efficiently encode the contact topology in terms of a labelled graph on a disjoint union of tori (one per binding… Expand

A h-principle for open relations invariant under foliated isotopies

AbstractThis paper presents a natural extension to foliated spaces of the follow-ing result due to Gromov : the h-principle for open, invariant diﬀerentialrelations is valid on open manifolds. The… Expand

A locally conformal symplectic (l.c.s.) manifold is a pair (M2n,fl) where M2n(n > i) is a connected differentiable manifold, and a nondegenerate 2-form on M such that M k9 Us (Us- open subsets) /U e… Expand

Morse theory for codimension-one foliations

- Mathematics

It is shown that a smooth codimension-one foliation on a compact simply-connected manifold has a compact leaf if and only if every smooth realvalued function on the manifold has a cusp singularity.… Expand

The plastikstufe – a generalization of the overtwisted disk to higher dimensions

- 2006

In this article, we give a first prototype-definition of overtwistedness in higher dimensions. According to this definition, a contact manifold is called overtwisted if it contains a plastikstufe, a… Expand
