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 and that, individually, their smooth knot type is determined entirely by the homotopy theoretic data which classifies the underlying Lagrangian immersion. The topological assumptions are satisfied by a large class of manifolds which are realised as monotone Lagrangians, including tori. After some…

LAGRANGIAN ISOTOPY OF TORI IN S 2 × S 2 AND CP 2

We show that, up to Lagrangian isotopy, there is a unique Lagrangian torus inside each of the following uniruled symplectic four-manifolds: the symplectic vector space R 4 , the projective plane CP 2

On linking of Lagrangian tori in R

We prove some results about linking of Lagrangian tori in the symplectic vector space (R, ω). We show that certain enumerative counts of holomophic disks give useful information about linking. This

Spherical Lagrangians via ball packings and symplectic cutting

In this paper, we prove the connectedness of symplectic ball packings in the complement of a spherical Lagrangian, $$S^{2}$$ or $$\mathbb{RP }^{2}$$, in symplectic manifolds that are rational or

Unlinking Lagrangians in Symplectic 4-Manifolds

We affirmatively answer a strong version in dimension $2n=4$ of a question of Eliashberg on linking of certain Lagrangian disks in $T^* \mathbb{R}^n$. This question was previously answered in

Dehn-Seidel twist, $C^0$ symplectic topology and barcodes

We initiate the study of the C symplectic mapping class group, i.e. the group of isotopy classes of symplectic homeomorphisms. We prove that none of the different powers of the square of the

Unknottedness of real Lagrangian tori in $$S^2\times S^2$$

We prove the Hamiltonian unknottedness of real Lagrangian tori in the monotone $S^2\times S^2$, namely any real Lagrangian torus in $S^2\times S^2$ is Hamiltonian isotopic to the Clifford torus

On linking of Lagrangian tori in $\mathbb{R}^4$

We prove some results about linking of Lagrangian tori in the symplectic vector space $(\mathbb{R}^4, \omega)$. We show that certain enumerative counts of holomophic disks give useful information

A pr 2 01 6 UNIQUENESS OF EXTREMAL LAGRANGIAN TORI IN THE FOUR-DIMENSIONAL DISC

The following interesting quantity was introduced by K. Cieliebak and K. Mohnke for a Lagrangian submanifold L of a symplectic manifold: the minimal positive symplectic area of a disc with boundary

String topology with gravitational descendants, and periods of Landau-Ginzburg potentials

This paper introduces new operations on the string topology of a smooth manifold: gravitational descendants of its cotangent bundle, which are augmentations of the Chas-Sullivan $L_\infty$ algebra

Lagrangian isotopy of tori in $${S^2\times S^2}$$S2×S2 and $${{\mathbb{C}}P^2}$$CP2

We show that, up to Lagrangian isotopy, there is a unique Lagrangian torus inside each of the following uniruled symplectic four-manifolds: the symplectic vector space $${{\mathbb{R}}^4}$$R4, the

On the extrinsic topology of Lagrangian submanifolds

We investigate the extrinsic topology of Lagrangian submanifolds and of their submanifolds in closed symplectic manifolds using Floer homological methods. The first result asserts that the homology

Fredholm theory and transversality for noncompact pseudoholomorphic mapsin symplectizations

We study pseudoholomorphic maps from a punctured Riemann surface into the symplectization of a contact manifold. A Fredholm theory yields the virtual dimension of the moduli spaces of such maps in

Lagrangian unknottedness in Stein surfaces

We show that the space of Lagrangian spheres inside the cotangent bundle of the 2-sphere, with its canonical symplectic structure, is contractible. We then discuss the phenomenon of Lagrangian

Remarks on monotone Lagrangians in $\mathbf{C}^n$

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

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

The Maslov class of Lagrangian tori and quantum products in Floer cohomology

We use Floer cohomology to prove the monotone version of a conjecture of Audin: the minimal Maslov number of a monotone Lagrangian torus in ℝ2n is 2. Our approach is based on the study of the quantum

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

In this paper we construct the Floer homology for an action functional which was introduced by Rabinowitz and prove a vanishing theorem. As an application, we show that there are no displaceable
