Cecilia Karlsson: Legendrian contact homology I

I will give a series of talks about Legendrian contact homology, an invariant of Legendrian submanifolds in 1-jet spaces, defined by a count of pseudo-holomorphic curves. In this first lecture I will give a brief and gentle introduction to symplectic and contact geometry, with focus on Lagrangian and Legendrian submanifolds. No previous knowledge about the subject is needed, except for elementary knowledge about differentiable manifolds.
