Providing the newest findings in issues from around the mathematical spectrum, this quantity comprises ends up in natural arithmetic in addition to a number new advances and novel purposes to different fields resembling likelihood, information, biology, and machine technology. All contributions characteristic authors who attended the organization for ladies in arithmetic learn Symposium in 2015: this convention, the 3rd in a chain of biennial meetings prepared by way of the organization, attracted over 330 members and showcased the examine of girls mathematicians from academia, undefined, and government.

6, more vigilance such as in [26, 27, 53] is required. 1 In order to construct a 2 + 1 connected Floer field theory Bor conn 2+1 → τ Cat, it suffices to construct a functor F : Bor conn 2+1 → Symp that preserves adjunctions. 2 by the following constructions. 24 K. Wehrheim 1. 4). 2. To a diffeomorphism φ : Σ0 → Σ1 associate a symplectomorphism Lφ : MΣ0 → MΣ1 such that Lφ ◦ Lψ = Lφ◦ψ (as maps) when φ, ψ are composable. (Σ, Σ ) between connected 3. 1 associate a Lagrangian submanifold Lα ⊂ MΣ− × MΣ (that is compact and τ -monotone).

L(Ψ |Σn−1 )−1 ◦ LY(n−1)n ◦ LΨ |∂ + Y , L(Ψ |∂ + Y )−1 ◦ L(ι+Y )−1 = Lι−Y , LY01 , LY12 , . . , LY(n−1)n , L(ι+Y )−1 = F ([Y ]). This finishes the proof that the unique extension F is a well-defined functor. 6 below to induce a functor Bor conn d+1 → Cat, as claimed. Here, the existence of the Yoneda functor follows from the fact that Sympτ extends to a 2-category. A formal notion of d + 1 Floer field theory should also include a notion of duality. However, the abstract categorical notion of duality requires a monoidal structure— roughly speaking, an associative multiplication of objects that extends to a bifunctor.

1) 6. For attaching circles α, β ⊂ Σ with transverse intersection in a single point, the composition Yα− ∪Σ Yβ Zφ is diffeomorphic with fixed boundary to the cylindrical cobordism of a diffeomorphism φ : Σα → Σβ determined by φ ◦ πα = πβ on Σ (α ∪ β) and φ(πα (β)) = πβ (α). Ensure that this is reflected by an embedded geometric composition LαT ◦ Lβ = gr(Lφ ). While step 1 fixes the functor F on all objects, steps 2 and 3 fix explicit Lagrangians F ([Y ]) = L Y only for simple morphisms Y as LZφ = Lφ for cylindrical cobordisms, LYα = Lα for 2-handle attachments, and LYα− = LαT for their adjoint 1-handle attachments.
