Properties of pseudoholomorphic curves in symplectisations. I : asymptotics
Abstract Given an oriented, compact, 3-dimenional contact manifold (M, λ) we study maps u ˜ = ( a , u ) : ℂ → ℝ × M satisfying the Cauch-Riemann type equation u ˜ s + J ˜ ( u ˜ ) u ˜ t = 0 , with a

Abstract Let α be a contact form on S3, let ξ be its Reeb vector-field and let v be a non-singular vector-field in ker α. Let Cβ be the space of curves x on S3 such ẋ = aξ + bv, ȧ = 0, a ≩ 0. Let L+,

DECOMPOSITIONS AND CONTACT STRUCTURES
This theorem plays a pivotal role in studying cobordisms of contact structures and understanding filling properties of contact structures, see [2, 6, 13, 14, 16, 19]. This better understanding of
Pseudoholomoprhic curves on the $\mathfrak{LCS}$-fication of contact manifolds
For each contact diffeomorphism φ : (Q, ξ) → (Q, ξ) of (Q, ξ), we equip its mapping torus Mφ with a locally conformal symplectic form of Banyaga’s type, which we call the lcs mapping torus of contact
On Weinstein conjecture for Stein surfaces with boundary
The purpose of this paper is to confirm the Weinstein conjecture for Stein surfaces with boundary whose canonical bundles are non-trivial. The key ingredient in the proof is a theorem of Taubes which

Abstract. This paper is concerned with Floer cohomology of manifolds with contact type boundary. In this case, there is no conjecture on this ring, as opposed to the compact case, where it is
