The Hofer length spectrum of symplectic surfaces

Michael Khanevsky (U Chicago Math)

Abstract: In Riemannian geometry the length spectrum is a rich source of invariants of the manifold. In the symplectic setting there is no notion of length, hence no possibility to define the length spectrum. Frederic Le Roux proposed the following construction: pick a ball of a fixed radius and translate it by a Hamiltonian isotopy along a given homotopy (or homology) class. The minimal Hofer energy required for such translation behaves in a very similar way to the Riemannian length spectrum. We will discuss some estimates for this energy in the two-dimensional case.

Fun with Power Operations

Peter Nelson (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Let E be an E-infinity ring...- wait, what does that even mean? What sort of structures does it give on homotopy? On the cohomology theory the spectrum represents? What do we win from this? What does it look like in practice? I'll address at least some of these questions, and hope to not make you more confused.

Fourier multiplier on noncommutative L_p

Adrian Gonzalez (ICMAT Spain )

Abstract: We will prove results on Fourier multiplier on L_p(LG) where LG is the von Neumann algebra of a topological group using two Laplacians.
