Minimal surfaces in symplectic 4-manifolds
Abstract.An adjunction number is defined for each surface in a
Riemannian 4-manifold. For minimal surfaces in symplectic 4-manifolds,
the adjunction numbers can be used to study pseudoholomorphic curves,
totally real minimal surfaces and Lagrangian minimal surfaces.
Tea. High tea will be served at 3:30pm in the Lounge.
Emmy's. Certain refreshments will be available at Emmy's after the talk.
Host. Shunhui Zhu is the host. Anybody who is interested in having dinner
with the speaker should contact Shunhui at 646-3678.
