Abstract/Media

In the first hour, I will explain the blueprint for the symplectic (A_\infty,2)-category, including several analytical results about moduli spaces of witch balls and algebraic results about 2-associahedra. In the second hour, I will discuss a new construction technique for quilts with seam conditions coming from symplectic reduction. Specifically, I will explain an extended example involving CF(Clifford circle, RP1) and CF(Clifford torus, RP2) on the other.
