|Symplectic Foliations and Generalized Complex Structures|
We answer the natural question: when is a transversely holomorphic symplectic foliation induced by a generalized complex structure? The leafwise symplectic form and transverse complex structure determine an obstruction class in a certain cohomology, which vanishes if and only if our question has an affirmative answer. We first study a component of this obstruction, which gives the condition that the leafwise cohomology class of the symplectic form must be transversely pluriharmonic. As a consequence, under certain topological hypotheses, we infer that we actually have a symplectic fibre bundle over a complex base. We then show how to compute the full obstruction via a spectral sequence. We give various concrete necessary and sufficient conditions for the vanishing of the obstruction. Throughout, we give examples to test the sharpness of these conditions, including a symplectic fibre bundle over a complex base which does not come from a generalized complex structure, and a regular generalized complex structure which is very unlike a symplectic fibre bundle, i.e., for which nearby leaves are not symplectomorphic.

|Variations of Integrals in Diffeology|
We establish the formula for the variation of integrals of differential forms on cubic chains, in the context of diffeological spaces. Then, we establish the diffeological version of Stoke's theorem, and we apply that to get the diffeological variant of the Cartan-Lie formula. Still in the context of Cartan-De-Rham calculus in diffeology, we construct a Chain-Homotopy Operator $\mathbf K$ we apply it here to get the homotopic invariance of De Rham cohomology for diffeological spaces. This is the Chain-Homotopy Operator which used in symplectic diffeology to construct the Moment Map.
