These notes give an introduction to embedded contact homology (ECH) of contact three-manifolds, gathering many basic notions which are scattered across a number of papers. We also discuss the origins of ECH, including various remarks and examples.

by - arXiv
This is an introduction to the basics of Heegaard Floer homology with some emphasis on the hat theory and to the contact geometric invariants in the theory. It is designed to be comprehensible to people without any prior knowledge of the subject.

Book cover: Introduction to Symplectic Field TheoryIntroduction to Symplectic Field Theory
by - arXiv
We sketch in this article a new theory, which we call Symplectic Field Theory or SFT, which provides an approach to Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic manifolds and their Lagrangian submanifolds in the spirit of topological field theory.

Book cover: Symplectic Geometry of Quantum NoiseSymplectic Geometry of Quantum Noise
by - arXiv
We discuss a quantum counterpart of certain constraints on Poisson brackets coming from 'hard' symplectic geometry. They can be interpreted in terms of the quantum noise of observables and their joint measurements in operational quantum mechanics.
