Central Extensions of Loop Groups and Obstruction to Pre-Quantization
An explicit construction of a pre-quantum line bundle for the moduli space of flat $G$-bundles over a Riemann surface is given, where $G$ is any non-simply connected compact simple Lie group. This work helps to explain a curious coincidence previously observed between Toledano Laredo's work classifying central extensions of loop groups $LG$ and the author's previous work on the obstruction to pre-quantization of the moduli space of flat $G$-bundles.

Symplectic Lie-Rinehart-Jacobi Algebras and Contact Manifolds
We give a characterization of contact manifolds in terms of symplectic Lie-Rinehart-Jacobi algebras. We also give a sufficient condition for a Jacobi manifold to be a contact manifold.

Keywords:Lie-Rinehart algebras, differential operators, Jacobi manifolds, symplectic manifolds, contact manifolds

Holomorphic 2-Forms and Vanishing Theorems for Gromov--Witten Invariants
On a compact K\"{a}hler manifold $X$ with a holomorphic 2-form $\a$, there is an almost complex structure associated with $\a$. We show how this implies vanishing theorems for the Gromov--Witten invariants of $X$. This extends the approach used by Parker and the author for K\"{a}hler surfaces to higher dimensions.

On Lagrangian Catenoids
Recently I. Castro and F. Urbano introduced the Lagrangian catenoid. Topologically, it is $\mathbb R\times S^{n-1}$ and its induced metric is conformally flat, but not cylindrical. Their result is that if a Lagrangian minimal submanifold in ${\mathbb C}^n$ is foliated by round $(n-1)$-spheres, it is congruent to a Lagrangian catenoid. Here we study the question of conformally flat, minimal, Lagrangian submanifolds in ${\mathbb C}^n$. The general problem is formidable, but we first show that such a submanifold resembles a Lagrangian catenoid in that its Schouten tensor has an eigenvalue of multiplicity one. Then, restricting to the case of at most two eigenvalues, we show that the submanifold is either flat and totally geodesic or is homothetic to (a piece of) the Lagrangian catenoid.

Equivariant Cohomology of $S^{1}$-Actions on $4$-Manifolds
Let $M$ be a symplectic $4$-dimensional manifold equipped with a Hamiltonian circle action with isolated fixed points. We describe a method for computing its integral equivariant cohomology in terms of fixed point data. We give some examples of these computations.

Foth, Philip
A Note on Lagrangian Loci of Quotients
We study Hamiltonian actions of compact groups in the presence of compatible involutions. We show that the Lagrangian fixed point set on the symplectically reduced space is isomorphic to the disjoint union of the involutively reduced spaces corresponding to involutions on the group strongly inner to the given one. Our techniques imply that the solution to the eigenvalues of a sum problem for a given real form can be reduced to the quasi-split real form in the same inner class. We also consider invariant quotients with respect to the corresponding real form of the complexified group.

Keywords:Quotients, involutions, real forms, Lagrangian loci

Rochon, Frédéric
Rigidity of Hamiltonian Actions
This paper studies the following question: Given an $\omega'$-symplectic action of a Lie group on a manifold $M$ which coincides, as a smooth action, with a Hamiltonian $\omega$-action, when is this action a Hamiltonian $\omega'$-action? Using a result of Morse-Bott theory presented in Section~2, we show in Section~3 of this paper that such an action is in fact a Hamiltonian $\omega'$-action, provided that $M$ is compact and that the Lie group is compact and connected. This result was first proved by Lalonde-McDuff-Polterovich in 1999 as a consequence of a more general theory that made use of hard geometric analysis. In this paper, we prove it using classical methods only.

Falbel, E.
Finite Groups Generated by Involutions on Lagrangian Planes of $\mathbf{C}^2$
We classify finite subgroups of $\SO(4)$ generated by anti-unitary involutions. They correspond to involutions fixing pointwise a Lagrangian plane. Explicit descriptions of the finite groups and the configurations of Lagrangian planes are obtained.

Quantization of Bending Deformations of Polygons In $\mathbb{E}^3$, Hypergeometric Integrals and the Gassner Representation
The Hamiltonian potentials of the bending deformations of $n$-gons in $\E^3$ studied in \cite{KM} and \cite{Kl} give rise to a Hamiltonian action of the Malcev Lie algebra $\p_n$ of the pure braid group $P_n$ on the moduli space $M_r$ of $n$-gon linkages with the side-lengths $r= (r_1,\dots, r_n)$ in $\E^3$. If $e\in M_r$ is a singular point we may linearize the vector fields in $\p_n$ at $e$. This linearization yields a flat connection $\nabla$ on the space $\C^n_*$ of $n$ distinct points on $\C$. We show that the monodromy of $\nabla$ is the dual of a quotient of a specialized reduced Gassner representation.
