Title: Introduction to Floer homology

Abstract: In this talk, after reviewing the classical finite dimensional Morse theory, I will give a short introduction to various versions of Floer homology theories, for example, Lagrangian intersection Floer homology in symplectic geometry and instanton Floer homology in gauge theory. I will also explain the conceptual picture of the celebrated Atiyah-Floer conjecture. Non-experts, especially graduate students are welcome.
