Commuting Hamiltonians and Symplectic Topology
Speaker: Claude Viterbo
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

We shall discuss the following question: given sequences of functions \(H_n,G_n\) on a symplectic manifold, converging for the \(C^0\) topology to \(H,G\) and such that their Poisson bracket tends to \(K\), in what sense do the Poisson brackets of \(F\) and \(G\) equal \(K\). We shall give examples, counter‐examples, and variations on this question.
