    We use Hamiltonian actions to construct new (as opposed to ℝℙn and Tn) Lagrangian submanifolds of ℂℙn. First of all, a quotient of ℝℙ3 by the dihedral group D3 is a Lagrangian submanifold of ℂℙ3. Secondly, SU(n)/ℤn/ℤn are...

    In this article we study the tangent cones at first time singularity of a Lagrangian mean curvature flow. If the initial compact submanifold Σ0 is Lagrangian and almost calibrated by ReΩ in a Calabi-Yau n-fold (M,Ω), and T>0 is the first blow-up time of the mean curvature flow, then the...

    Given a Kähler manifold of complex dimension 4, we consider submanifolds of (real) dimension 4 whose Kähler angles coincide. We call these submanifolds Cayley. We investigate some of their basic properties, and prove that: (a) if the ambient manifold is Calabi-Yau, the minimal Cayley...

    We study Lagrangian submanifolds foliated by ( n − 1)–spheres in ℝ2 n for n ≥ 3. We give a general parametrization for such submanifolds, and refine that description when the submanifold is special Lagrangian, self–similar, Hamiltonian stationary or has mean...

    For a Lie algebroid A, the A-tangent bundle to A*, JAA*, is a symplectic Lie algebroid over A* and the linear Poisson structure on A* may be described in terms of the symplectic section on JAA*. We discuss the relation between Lagrangian anchored vector subbundles L of JAA* and coisotropic...
