„Toric lagrangians“
Prof. Ana Cannas da Silva, ETH Zürich

Toric manifolds have gained prominence as testing grounds for new theories. Moreover, they have a strong mathematical appeal, inasmuch as they enjoy a slew of properties and they follow a rigid yet rich classification. From the symplectic viewpoint, they are classified by some polytopes (a theorem of Delzant's) and can be handled with action-angle coordinates (an idea rooted in work of Archimedes). After an overview of symplectic toric manifolds, this talk will explain how the language of polytopes and action-angle coordinates allows us to understand lagrangian submanifolds well adjusted to the toric structure.
