Morse theory for the action functional and a Poincare-Birkhoff theorem for flows

ABSTRACT: The goal of this talk is twofold. Firstly I would like to explain how pseudo-holomorphic curves can be used to study Morse theory of the action functional from classical mechanics. Then I will move to applications, focusing on a generalization of the Poincare-Birkhoff theorem for Reeb flows on the three-sphere.
