We construct positive loops of Legendrian submanifolds in several instances. In particular, we partially recover G. Liu’s result stating that any loose Legendrian admits a positive loop, under some mild topological assumptions on the Legendrian. Moreover, we show contractibility of the constructed loops under an extra topological assumption.
We study Legendrian embeddings of a compact Legendrian submanifold L sitting in a closed contact manifold (M,ξ) whose contact structure is supported by a (contact) open book OB on M. We prove that if OB has Weinstein pages, then there exist a contact structure ξ′ on M, isotopic to ξ and supported by OB, and a contactomorphism f:(M,ξ)→(M,ξ′) such that the image f(L) of any such submanifold can be Legendrian isotoped so that it becomes disjoint from the closure of a page of OB.
We show that the symmetrized bidisc may be exhausted by strongly linearly convex domains. It shows in particular the existence of a strongly linearly convex domain that cannot be exhausted by domains biholomorphic to convex ones.
