Symplectic folding and nonisotopic polydisks

Richard Hind

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 2171–2192
Abstract

Let P1 be a polydisk and P2 = ϕ(P1) where ϕ is a certain symplectic fold. We determine sharp lower bounds on the size of a ball containing the support of a symplectomorphism mapping P1 to P2. Optimal symplectomorphisms are the folds themselves. As a result, we construct symplectically nonisotopic polydisks in balls and in the complex projective plane.
