"Topology of equivariant symplectic embedding groups"

Abstract: We classify the homotopy type of the space of T^n equivariant symplectic embeddings from the standard 2n-dimensional ball of some fixed radius into a 2n-dimensional symplectic--toric manifold. Applications to symplectic blowing up and the sympletic packing problem will also presented (if there is enough time).
