Circle actions on almost complex manifolds with few fixed points

Donghoon Jang (Pusan National University)

Abstract: A circle action on a manifold can be thought of as a periodic flow on a manifold (periodic dynamical system), or roughly a rotation of a manifold. During this talk, we consider circle actions on almost complex manifolds, which are more general than symplectic manifolds. We discuss classification of a circle action on a compact almost complex manifold $M$, when the number $k$ of fixed points is small. If $k=1$, $M$ is a point. If $k=2$, $M$ resembles $S^2$ or $S^6$. If $k=3$, $M$ resembles $\mathbb{CP}^2$. We also discuss when $k=4$ and $\dim M \leq 6$. Techniques include equivariant cohomology and index theory.
