We introduce a new class of non-compact symplectic manifolds called
Liouville sectors and show they have well-behaved, covariantly functorial
Fukaya categories. Stein manifolds frequently admit coverings by Liouville
sectors, which can be used to understand the Fukaya category of the total
space (we will study this geometry in examples). Our first main result in
this setup is a local-to-global criterion for generating Fukaya categories.
Our eventual goal is to obtain a combinatorial presentation of the Fukaya
category of any Stein manifold. This is joint work (in progress) with John
Pardon and Vivek Shende.
I will first overview the classical holomorphic isometry problem between complex manifolds, in particular between bounded symmetric domains. When the source is the unit ball, in general the characterization of holomorphic isometries to bounded symmetric domains is not quite clear. With Shan Tai Chan, we recently characterized the holomorphic isometries from the Poincare disc to the product of the unit disc with the unit ball and it provided new examples of holomorphic isometries from the Poincare disc into irreducible bounded symmetric domains of rank at least 2.
Under some topological assumption (which gives the boundedness of Sobolev constant), we construct the space of ALE SFK metrics on minimal ALE Kahler surfaces asymptotic to C^2/G, where G is a finite subgroup of U(2). This is a joint work with Jeff Viaclovsky.
