The Symplectic Thom Conjecture
"... In this paper, we demonstrate a relation among SeibergWitten invariants which arises from embedded surfaces in fourmanifolds whose selfintersection number is negative. These relations, together with Taubes' basic theorems on the SeibergWitten invariants of symplectic manifolds, are then use ..."

, are then used to prove the Symplectic Thom Conjecture: a symplectic surface in a symplectic fourmanifold is genusminimizing in its homology class. Another corollary of the relations is a general adjunction inequality for embedded surfaces of negative selfintersection in fourmanifolds. 1.
Holomorphic triangle invariants and the topology of symplectic fourmanifolds
 Duke Math. J
"... This article analyzes the interplay between symplectic geometry in dimension 4 and the invariants for smooth fourmanifolds constructed using holomorphic triangles introduced in [20]. Specifically, we establish a nonvanishing result for the invariants of symplectic fourmanifolds, which leads to new ..."

to new proofs of the indecomposability theorem for symplectic fourmanifolds and the symplectic Thom conjecture. As a new application, we generalize the indecomposability theorem to splittings of fourmanifolds along a certain class of threemanifolds obtained by plumbings of spheres. This leads
RELATIVE SYMPLECTIC CAPS, 4GENUS AND FIBERED KNOTS
"... Abstract. We prove relative versions of the symplectic capping theorem and sufficiency of Giroux’s criterion for Stein fillability and use these to study the 4genus of knots. More precisely, suppose we have a symplectic 4manifold X with convex boundary and a symplectic surface Σ in X such that ∂ ..."

such that ∂Σ is a transverse knot in ∂X. In this paper, we prove that there is a closed symplectic 4manifold Y with a closed symplectic surface S such that (X,Σ) embeds into (Y, S) symplectically. As a consequence we obtain a relative version of the Symplectic Thom conjecture. We also prove a relative version
Braid group actions on derived categories of coherent sheaves
 DUKE MATH. J
, 2001
"... This paper gives a construction of braid group actions on the derived category of coherent sheaves on a variety X. The motivation for this is M. Kontsevich’s homological mirror conjecture, together with the occurrence of certain braid group actions in symplectic geometry. One of the main results is ..."

Transversality in elliptic Morse theory for the symplectic action
, 1999
"... Our goal in this paper is to settle some transversality question for the perturbed nonlinear CauchyRiemann equations on the cylinder. These results play a central role in the definition of symplectic Floer homology and hence in the proof of the Arnold conjecture. There is currently no other referen ..."

Proof of Gradient Conjecture of R. Thom
"... Let x(t) be a trajectory of the gradient of a real analytic function and suppose that x0 is a limit point of x(t). We prove the gradient conjecture of R. Thom which states that the secants of x(t) at x0 have a limit. Actually we show a stronger statement: the radial projection of x(t) from x0 ont ..."

On the First Integral Conjecture of René Thom
, 710
"... Abstract. More than half a century ago R. Thom asserted in an unpublished manuscript that, generically, vector fields on compact connected smooth manifolds without boundary can admit only trivial continuous first integrals. Though somehow unprecise for what concerns the interpretation of the word “g ..."
Abstract
 Add to MetaCart
“generically”, this statement is ostensibly true and is nowadays commonly accepted. On the other hand, the (few) known formal proofs of Thom’s conjecture are all relying to the classical Sard theorem and are thus requiring the technical assumption that first integrals should be of class C k with k ≥ d, where d
