Lagrangian Cycles and Volume

In this talk we will introduce the constrained variational problem of minimizing volume among lagrangian cycles representing a homology class and describe the relevance of this problem to some current problems in Kaehler geometry. We will outline the results in the two dimensional case and, in particular, describe the current state of our understanding of singularities.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge, Math Annex (Room 1115).
