For any coadjoint orbit G/L, we determine all useful terms of the associated SavelyevSeidel morphism defined on H−∗(ΩG). Immediate consequences are: (1) the dimension of the kernel of the natural map π∗(G)⊗Q → π∗(Ham(G/L))⊗Q is at most the semi-simple rank of L, and (2) the Bott-Samelson cycles in ΩG which correspond to Peterson elements are solutions to the min-max problem for Hofer’s max-length functional on ΩHam(G/L). The proof is based on Bae-Chow-Leung’s recent computation of Ma’u-Wehrheim… Expand

Characteristic classes in symplectic topology
From the cohomological point of view the symplectomorphism group $Sympl (M)$ of a symplectic manifold is `` tamer'' than the diffeomorphism group. The existence of invariant polynomials in the LieExpand
