Ana Cannas da Silva (ETH Zurich) Embedded Lagrangians in $\mathbb C P^2$ Abstract: Weinstein's symplectic creed that "everything is a lagrangian" bolsters a central question in symplectic geometry: what lagrangians are there in a given symplectic manifold? This question comes in different flavours depending on further desired properties. We concentrate on embedded (closed) lagrangians in $\mathbb CP^2$ that sit nicely with respect to the toric structure and discuss an example that exhibits a distinguishing behavior under reduction relevant in connection with Weinstein's lagrangian composition and work of Wehrheim and Woodward in Floer theory.
