Partial orders on contactomorphism groups and their Lie algebras
Eliashberg, Kim and Polterovich constructed nontrivial partial orders on contactomorphism groups of certain contact manifolds. After recalling their results, the subject of this talk will be the remnants of these partial orders on the orbits of the coadjoint action on their Lie algebras.
