Symplectic Geometry and Physics Tutorials

Part of the Long Program Symplectic Geometry and Physics
March 18 - 21, 2003


The long program opens with four days of tutorials that will provide an introduction to major themes of the entire program and the workshops. The goal is to build a foundation for the participants of this program who have diverse scientific backgrounds.  The topics will include:

  • Symplectic Lefschetz pencils
  • Mirror symmetry and deformation theory
  • Chaotic dynamics
