Essential tori in spaces of symplectic embeddings

Julian Chaidez and Mihai Munteanu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 21 (2021) 2489–2522
Abstract

Given two 2n–dimensional symplectic ellipsoids whose symplectic sizes satisfy certain inequalities, we show that a certain map from the n–torus to the space of symplectic embeddings from one ellipsoid to the other induces an injective map on singular homology with mod 2 coefficients. The proof uses parametrized moduli spaces of J–holomorphic cylinders in completed symplectic cobordisms.
