### Every symplectic submanifold is J-holomorphic

I am trying to show that every symplectic submanifold $N$ of a 2n- dimensional symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$ is J-holomorphic for some compatible almost complex structure $J$.
The way I am ...

### A special non vanishing vector field on odd dimensional compact manifolds

Edit: According to the comment of Michael Albanese we revise the question.
Assume that $n$ is an odd integer and $M\subset \mathbb{R}^{2n}$ is a compact orientable $n$ dimensional submanifold.
Does ...

### Symplectic vector fields everywhere transverse to a co-dimension one hypersurface

Usually when speaking about vector fields transverse to a hypersurface in a symplectic manifold, we talk about Liouville vector fields, i.e. vector fields $X$ with the property that $\mathcal{L}_X\...

### Transitivity of Diff on the space of embeddings of balls

Given 2 symplectic embeddings $g_0$ and $g_1$ of a 4-ball of radius $r \leq 1$ into the 4-ball of radius 1 (all equipped with the standard symplectic form coming from $\mathbb{R}^4$), does there exist ...

### Nash isometric embedding theorem with keeping the symplectic structures of our ambient spaces

I apologize in advance if this question has an obvious answer.
Let $(M,g)$ be a Riemannian manifold.
Then the tangent bundle $TM$ carries a natural symplectic structure $\omega_g$. In fact $\omega_g$...

### What can we say about the Cartesian product of a manifold with its exotic copy?

Let $M$ be a smooth oriented manifold, and let $M^E$ be an exotic copy, i.e homeomorphic but not diffeomorphic to $M$.
Is it true that $M\times M$ is diffeomorphic to $M\times M^E$?
I am ...

### What is symplectic cut of a 4-ball?

Lerman's symplectic cut construction applied on 4-ball by collapsing its boundary 3-sphere along the $\mathbb{S}^1$ orbits of Hopf fibration gives a closed 4-dimensional symplectic manifold. ...

### Existence of isotopy preserving the action

Let $\gamma_1$ and $\gamma_2$ be simple closed curves in $R^4.$ Let $\lambda= x_1 dy_1+ x_2dy_2.$ Suppose that $\int_{\gamma_1} \lambda= \int_{\gamma_2} \lambda.$
I am looking for a reference for ...

### Hamiltonian Group action with infinitely many stabiliser types

What is an example of a connected symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$, with a Hamiltonian action of $G = U(1) =S^{1}$ with infinitely many stabiliser types?
Infinitely many stabiliser types means that ...

### Every contractible smooth loop has a neighbourhood with $H^2=0$

Let $c: S^1 \to M$ be a smooth contractible loop (not necesarily an embedding, or even an immersion) on the connected, compact symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$ (if this helps somehow, $c$ is a $1$-...

### $(M,\omega)$ not symplectomorphic to $(M,-\omega)$

Looking for an example of a symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$ that is not symplectomorphic to $(M,-\omega)$.
In particular this means that $M$ must be chiral (i.e. doesn't admit an orientation-...

### Morse theory in infinite dimensions

It seems that people often talk of "doing Morse theory" on loop spaces in two quite different contexts.
Case 1: When one does Morse theory on a loop space $\Omega(M; p,q)$ using the energy ...

### Higher homotopy of diffeomorphism groups from singularities

In the case of a genus $g$ surface $\Sigma$, it is well known that $MCG(\Sigma) = \pi_0 \operatorname{Diff}^+(\Sigma)$ is generated by Dehn twists, which come from a Kahler degeneration with smooth ...
