Before the MATH+ Friday Colloquium (joint with the IAS/Princeton/Montreal/Paris//Tel-Aviv Symplectic Geometry Zoominar) by Prof. Helmut Hofer (abstract, video recording)
Due to the current situation, the talk takes place online, via zoom. The meeting link has been sent out via the usual mailing lists; please contact the organisers if you have not received the email and would like to join the talk.
About what?

We shall introduce Morse theory and the notion of Floer homology for a finite dimensional orientable closed manifold with an example. Then we will outline how this is generalized for infinite dimensional manifolds (like loop spaces, curves in a manifold, etc) and in the symplectic/contact settings.
