Embedded contact homology gives a sequence of obstructions to four-dimensional symplectic embeddings, called ECH capacities. In "Symplectic embeddings into four-dimensional concave toric domains", the author, Choi, Frenkel, Hutchings and Ramos computed the ECH capacities of all "concave toric domains", and showed that these give sharp obstructions in several interesting cases. We show that these obstructions are sharp for all symplectic embeddings of concave toric domains into "convex" ones. 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

Given two 4-dimensional ellipsoids whose symplectic sizes satisfy a specified inequality, we prove that a certain loop of symplectic embeddings between the two ellipsoids is noncontractible. The
Beyond ECH capacities
ECH (embedded contact homology) capacities give obstructions to symplectically embedding one four-dimensional symplectic manifold with boundary into another. These obstructions are known to be sharp
An elementary alternative to ECH capacities
The ECH capacities are a sequence of numerical invariants of symplectic four-manifolds which give (sometimes sharp) obstructions to symplectic embeddings. These capacities are defined using embedded
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
Nontrivial tori in spaces of symplectic embeddings
Author(s): Munteanu, Cristian Mihai | Advisor(s): Hutchings, Michael | Abstract: This dissertation is comprised of two papers studying the topology of certain spaces of symplectic embeddings. The
Towers of Looijenga pairs and asymptotics of ECH capacities
ECH capacities are rich obstructions to symplectic embeddings in 4-dimensions that have also been seen to arise in the context of algebraic positivity for (possibly singular) projective surfaces. We
Sharp Ellipsoid Embeddings and Toric Mutations
This article introduces a new method to construct volume-filling symplectic embeddings of 4-dimensional ellipsoids by employing polytope mutations in toric and almost-toric varieties. The
Symplectic Embeddings of Toric Domains
This work examines a special class of symplectic manifolds known as toric domains. The main problem under consideration is embedding one toric domain into another in a way that preserves the
ECH capacities, Ehrhart theory, and toric varieties
ECH capacities were developed by Hutchings to study embedding problems for symplectic $4$-manifolds with boundary. They have found especial success in the case of certain toric symplectic manifolds


Symplectic embeddings into four‐dimensional concave toric domains
ECH (embedded contact homology) capacities give obstructions to symplectically embedding one symplectic four‐manifold with boundary into another. We compute the ECH capacities of a large family of
Beyond ECH capacities
ECH (embedded contact homology) capacities give obstructions to symplectically embedding one four-dimensional symplectic manifold with boundary into another. These obstructions are known to be sharp
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
Quantitative embedded contact homology
Define a "Liouville domain" to be a compact exact symplectic manifold with contact-type boundary. We use embedded contact homology to assign to each four-dimensional Liouville domain (or subset
The Hofer conjecture on embedding symplectic ellipsoids
In this note we show that one open four dimensional ellipsoid embeds symplectically into another if and only the ECH capacities of the first are no larger than those of the second. This proves a
Symplectic embeddings of 4‐dimensional ellipsoids
We show how to reduce the problem of symplectically embedding one 4-dimensional rational ellipsoid into another to a problem of embedding disjoint unions of balls into ℂP 2 . For example, the problem
Ehrhart functions and symplectic embeddings of ellipsoids
McDuff has previously shown that one four‐dimensional symplectic ellipsoid can be symplectically embedded into another if and only if a certain combinatorial criteria holds. We reinterpret this
Packing numbers of rational ruled 4-manifolds
We completely solve the symplectic packing problem with equally sized balls for any rational, ruled, symplectic 4-manifolds. We give explicit formulae for the packing numbers, the generalized Gromov
The asymptotics of ECH capacities
In a previous paper, the second author used embedded contact homology (ECH) of contact three-manifolds to define “ECH capacities” of four-dimensional symplectic manifolds. In the present paper we
Symplectic genus, minimal genus and diffeomorphisms
In this paper, the symplectic genus for any 2-dimensional class in a 4-manifold admitting a symplectic structure is introduced, and its relation with the minimal genus is studied. It is used to
