Welcome to this licentiate seminar held by Axel Husin with the title "Local systems and vanishing of Maslov class".

Abstract: Let L be a closed exact Lagrangian submanifold in the cotangent bundle T*X of a closed manifold X. We present partial results towards a new proof using Lagrangian intersection Floer theory that the Maslov class of L vanishes.

Faculty opponent is lecturer Jack Smith from St John's College, Cambridge.
