Examples of monotone Lagrangians
Joint work with Mohammed Abouzaid. We present some methods for constructing examples of compact monotone Lagrangians in families of $(n-1)$-dimensional affine hypersurfaces; they can be upgraded to Lagrangians in $C^n$. We will then explain different strategies for telling them apart, using Floer homology, and, time allowing, some counts of holomorphic annuli. The talk will only assume minimal knowledge of symplectic geometry.
