Symplectic capacities from positive $S^1$–equivariant symplectic homology

Jean Gutt and Michael Hutchings

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 3537–3600
Abstract

We use positive S1–equivariant symplectic homology to define a sequence of symplectic capacities ck for star-shaped domains in 2n. These capacities are conjecturally equal to the Ekeland–Hofer capacities, but they satisfy axioms which allow them to be computed in many more examples. In particular, we give combinatorial formulas for the capacities ck of any “convex toric domain” or “concave toric domain”. As an application, we determine optimal symplectic embeddings of a cube into any convex or concave toric domain. We also extend the capacities ck to functions of Liouville domains which are almost but not quite symplectic capacities.
