On the rigidity of lagrangian products

  title={On the rigidity of lagrangian products},
  author={Vinicius G. B. Ramos and Daniele Sepe},
  journal={Journal of Symplectic Geometry},
Motivated by work of the first author, this paper studies symplectic embedding problems of lagrangian products that are sufficiently symmetric. In general, lagrangian products arise naturally in the study of billiards. The main result of the paper is the rigidity of a large class of symplectic embedding problems of lagrangian products in any dimension. This is achieved by showing that the lagrangian products under consideration are symplectomorphic to toric domains, and by using the Gromov…

Symplectic embeddings into disk cotangent bundles
In this paper, we compute the embedded contact homology (ECH) capacities of the disk cotangent bundles D∗S2 and D∗RP 2. We also find sharp symplectic embeddings into these domains. In particular, we
Symplectic embeddings of the $\ell_p$-sum of two discs
In this paper we study symplectic embedding questions for the $\ell_p$-sum of two discs in ${\mathbb R}^4$, when $1 \leq p \leq \infty$. In particular, we compute the symplectic inner and outer radii
Towards the strong Viterbo conjecture
This paper is a step towards the strong Viterbo conjecture on the coincidence of all symplectic capacities on convex domains. Our main result is a proof of this conjecture in dimension 4 for the
The Viterbo's capacity conjectures for convex toric domains and the product of a $1$-unconditional convex body and its polar
In this note, we show that the strong Viterbo conjecture holds true on any convex toric domain, and that the Viterbo's volume-capacity conjecture holds for the product of a $1$-unconditional convex


Symplectic embeddings and the lagrangian bidisk
In this paper we obtain sharp obstructions to the symplectic embedding of the lagrangian bidisk into four-dimensional balls, ellipsoids and symplectic polydisks. We prove, in fact, that the interior
Symplectic embeddings of ellipsoids
We study the rigidity and flexibility of symplectic embeddings in the model case in which the domain is a symplectic ellipsoid. It is first proved that under the conditionrn2≤2r12 the symplectic
Asymptotically Holomorphic Families of Symplectic Submanifolds
Abstract. We construct a wide range of symplectic submanifolds in a compact symplectic manifold as the zero sets of asymptotically holomorphic sections of vector bundles obtained by tensoring an
The Gromov width of 4-dimensional tori
We show that every 4-dimensional torus with a linear symplectic form can be fully filled by one symplectic ball. If such a torus is not symplectomorphic to a product of 2-dimensional tori with equal

Numerical invariants defined using embedded contact homology give general obstructions to symplectic embeddings in four dimensions which turn out to be sharp in the above cases.
New obstructions to symplectic embeddings
In this paper we establish new restrictions on the symplectic embeddings of basic shapes in symplectic vector spaces. By refining an embedding technique due to Guth, we also show that they are sharp.
Symplectic embeddings of products
McDuff and Schlenk determined when a four-dimensional ellipsoid can be symplectically embedded into a four-dimensional ball, and found that when the ellipsoid is close to round, the answer is given
When symplectic topology meets Banach space geometry
In this paper we survey some recent works that take the first steps toward establishing bilateral connections between symplectic geometry and several other fields, namely, asymptotic geometric
Quantitative symplectic geometry
While symplectic manifolds have no local invariants, they do admit many global numerical invariants. Prominent among them are the so-called symplectic capacities. Different capacities are defined in
Symplectic capacities from positive S1–equivariant symplectic homology
We use positive S^1-equivariant symplectic homology to define a sequence of symplectic capacities c_k for star-shaped domains in R^{2n}. These capacities are conjecturally equal to the Ekeland-Hofer
