    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...

    We establish the correspondence between Euclidean differential geometry of submanifolds in $\mathbb{R}^n$ and projective differential geometry of submanifolds in $\mathbb{R}^{n +1 }$ under stereographic projection to quadrics of revolution (and to a more general class of quadrics called...

    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...
