We study the CalabiYau equation on symplectic manifolds. We show that Donaldson's conjecture on estimates for this equation in terms of a taming symplectic form can be reduced to an integral estimate of a scalar potential function. Under a positive curvature condition, we show that the conjecture holds.
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 obtain an effective lower bound on the distance of the sum of co-adjoint orbits from the origin. Even when the distance is zero (thus the symplectic quotient is well defined) our result gives a nontrivial constraint on these co-adjoint orbits. In the particular case of unitary groups, we obtain the quadratic inequality for eigenvalues of Hermitian matrices satisfying
A + B = C.
This quadratic inequality can be interpreted as the Chern number inequality for semi-stable reflexive toric sheaves.
