Title: Lagrangian knots and symplectic quasi-measures
Abstract: (Joint work with Y.Eliashberg and M.Entov.)

Symplectic quasi-measures are defined through Floer theory, while their origins go back to foundations of quantum mechanics. I shall discuss this notion and present an application to the problem of Lagrangian knots in symplectic manifolds. The talk is based on joint works with Y.Eliashberg and with M.Entov.
