Geometric Analysis and Topology Seminar

Floer Field Theory for Tangles

Speaker: Chris Woodward, Rutgers

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 813

Date: Friday, April 7, 2006, 2 p.m.


This is joint work with K. Wehrheim. Using our previous work on functoriality of Floer theory for Lagrangian correspondences in Floer theory we define invariants of 1 and 2- tangles using moduli spaces of flat bundles on the punctured sphere.
