Claremont Topology Seminar: Joe Breen (University of Iowa)

April 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We especially welcome all undergraduates and graduate students to attend topology seminar!

Speaker: Joe Breen (University of Iowa)

Title: Open books in all dimensions

Abstract: I will discuss recent work (joint with K. Honda and Y. Huang) on establishing a relationship, first discovered by Giroux, between “contact structures” and “open books”. This relationship has been widely used in 3-dimensional contact topology, and mathematicians are beginning to investigate the consequences in higher-dimensional contact topology. No background knowledge of contact topology or open book decompositions will be assumed. I will even motivate why higher-dimensional contact topology could be useful for questions in low-dimensional topology.
