Remarks on symplectically aspherical manifoldsBorat, Ays̨e January 2013 (has links)
Symplectically aspherical manifolds rst appeared in the work of Floer where he proved a version of the Arnold Conjecture. Since then their topological properties have been studied. One of the results of the present thesis are new characterisations of symplectically aspherical manifolds. Namely, we prove in Chapter 4 that a closed symplectic manifold is symplectically aspherical if and only if one of the following conditions hold: Its universal cover can be symplectically embedded into the standard sym plectic Euclidean space. Its fundamental group is large (see De nition 4.7 for the de nition of large ness). The latter condition has a well known counterpart in algebraic geometry. It has been conjectured by Shafarevich (see [32]) that a closed algebraic variety has a Stein universal cover if and only if its fundamental group is large (in the algebraic sense). A manifold is Stein if it is holomorphically embedded into the standard complex vector space. Thus the characterisations of symplectically aspherical manifolds mentioned above prove a symplectic analog of the Shafarevich conjecture. One may ask whether the universal cover of a symplectically aspherical manifold is Stein. In Chapter 5, we construct an example of a closed symplectically aspherical manifold whose universal cover is not Stein. This is the second main result of the thesis. In Chapter 6, we focus on the properties of the fundamental group of symplectically aspherical manifolds. The main result here is to relate the Flux group of a symplecti cally aspherical manifold with its geometric properties. More precisely, we prove that if the Flux group is nontrivial then the manifold is not symplectically hyperbolic. It is not known that if a nontrivial free product of groups can be realised as the fundamental group of a closed symplectically aspherical manifold. In Chapter 5, we construct an example of a closed symplectically aspherical manifold whose universal cover is not Stein. This is the second main result of the thesis.In Chapter 6, we focus on the properties of the fundamental group of symplectically aspherical manifolds. The main result here is to relate the Flux group of a symplecti cally aspherical manifold with its geometric properties. More precisely, we prove that if the Flux group is nontrivial then the manifold is not symplectically hyperbolic. It is not known that if a nontrivial free product of groups can be realised as the fundamental group of a closed symplectically aspherical manifold. In Chapter 5, we investigate a more general problem to obtain some partial results. The remaining parts of the thesis introduce symplectic and symplectically aspherical manifolds and review what is known in the subject.

Centre manifold theory with an application in population modelling.Phongi, Eddy Kimba. January 2009 (has links)
There are basically two types of variables in population modelling, global and local variables. The former describes the behavior of the entire population while the latter describes the behavior of individuals within this population. The description of the population using local variables is more detailed, but it is also computationally costly. In many cases to study the dynamics of this population, it is sufficient to focus only on global variables. In applied sciences, to achieve this, the method of aggregation of variables is used. One of methods used to mathematically justify variables aggregation is the centre manifold theory. In this dissertation we provide detailed proofs of basic results of the centre manifold theory and discuss some examples of applications in population modelling. / Thesis (M.Sc.)University of KwaZuluNatal, Westville, 2009.
