Abstract: Consider two Lagrangian submanifolds L, L′ in a symplectic manifold (M,ω). A Lagrangian cobordism (W;L,L′) is a smooth cobordism between L and L′ admitting a Lagrangian embedding in (([0,1]×R)×M,(dx∧dy)⊕ω) that looks like [0,ϵ)×{1}×L and (1−ϵ,1]×{1}×L′ near the boundary.
In this talk we will show that under some topological constrains, an exact Lagrangian cobordism (W;L,L′) with dim(W)>5 is diffeomorphic to [0,1]×L.
