Symplectic geometry of Anosov flows in dimension 3 and bi-contact topology

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 1:30pm
Via Zoom

We give a purely contact and symplectic geometric characterization of Anosov flows in dimension 3 and set up a framework to use tools from contact and symplectic geometry and topology in the study of questions about Anosov dynamics. If time permits, we will discuss a characterization of Anosovity based on Reeb flows and its consequences.
