Pseudo-trisections and their diagramsGeometry/Topology
|Speaker:||Shintaro Fushida-Hardy, Stanford University|

We introduce pseudo-trisections of 4-manifolds with boundary and compare and contrast them with relative trisections. We will explore examples of surfaces embedded nicely in pseudo-trisected 4-manifolds and demonstrate how to diagrammatically compute several associated invariants, such as "which second homology class of the underlying 4-manifold is represented by the surface?".
