We derive some restrictions on the topology of a monotone Lagrangian submanifold $L\subset\mathbf{C}^n$ by making observations about the topology of the moduli space of Maslov 2 holomorphic discs with boundary on $L$ and then using Damian's theorem which gives conditions under which the evaluation map from this moduli space to $L$ has nonzero degree. In particular we prove that an orientable 3-manifold admits a monotone Lagrangian embedding in $\mathbf{C}^3$ only if it is a product, which is a…

On the topology of monotone Lagrangian submanifolds

We find new obstructions on the topology of monotone Lagrangian submanifolds of $C^{n}$ under some hypothesis on the homology of their universal cover. In particular we show that nontrivial connected

Monotone Lagrangian submanifolds of $\mathbb{C}^n$ and toric topology

Let $\mathcal{N}$ be the total space of a bundle over some $k$-dimensional torus with fibre $\mathcal{R}$, where $\mathcal{R}$ is diffeomorphic to $S^k \times S^l$, or $S^k \times S^l \times S^m$, or

Unlinking and unknottedness of monotone Lagrangian submanifolds

Under certain topological assumptions, we show that two monotone Lagrangian submanifolds embedded in the standard symplectic vector space with the same monotonicity constant cannot link one another

Families of monotone Lagrangians in Brieskorn–Pham hypersurfaces

We present techniques, inspired by monodromy considerations, for constructing compact monotone Lagrangians in certain affine hypersurfaces, chiefly of Brieskorn–Pham type. We focus on dimensions 2

Let L be a Lagrangian submanifold in a symplectic vector space which is closed, oriented and spin. Using virtual fundamental chains of moduli spaces of nonconstant pseudo‐holomorphic disks with

Bounding Lagrangian widths via geodesic paths

Abstract The width of a Lagrangian is the largest capacity of a ball that can be symplectically embedded into the ambient manifold such that the ball intersects the Lagrangian exactly along the real

Fukaya's work on Lagrangian embeddings

This is an expository account of some applications of string topology to the study of Lagrangian embeddings into symplectic manifolds, originally due to Fukaya, which was written as a contribution to



Floer homology on the universal cover, a proof of Audin's conjecture and other constraints on Lagrangian submanifolds

We establish a new version of Floer homology for monotone Lagrangian submanifolds and apply it to prove the following (generalized) version of Audin's conjecture : if $L$ is an aspherical manifold

Constructing exact Lagrangian immersions with few double points

We establish, as an application of the results from Eliashberg and Murphy (Lagrangian caps, 2013), an h-principle for exact Lagrangian immersions with transverse self-intersections and the minimal,

Straightening and bounded cohomology of hyperbolic groups

Abstract. It was stated by M. Gromov [Gr2] that, for any hyperbolic group G, the map from bounded cohomology $ H^n_b(G,{\Bbb R}) $ to $ H^n(G,{\Bbb R}) $ induced by inclusion is surjective for $ n

Pseudo holomorphic curves in symplectic manifolds

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

Simplicial Volume*

Simplicial volume is a homotopy invariant of oriented closed connected manifolds introduced by Gromov in his proof of Mostow rigidity. On the one hand, the simplicial volume of a Riemannian manifold

Negatively curved manifolds with exotic smooth structures

Let M denote a compact real hyperbolic manifold with dimension m > 5 and sectional curvature K = -1, and let Y be an exotic sphere of dimension m . Given any small number J > 0, we show that there is

Symplectic rigidity: Lagrangian submanifolds

This chapter is supposed to be a summary of what is known today about Lagrangian embeddings. We emphasise the difference between flexibility results, such as the h-principle of Gromov applied here to

Notes on monotone Lagrangian twist tori

We construct monotone Lagrangian tori in the standard symplectic vector space, in the complex projective space and in products of spheres. We explain how to classify these Lagrangian tori up to
