Abstract: In the 70's, Thurston classified the mapping class groups of surfaces. The main idea is to observe what happens under the iteration of a mapping class. In this talk, we will apply the idea on a symplectic manifold. More precisely, we will see what happens when a symplectic automorphism is iterated and we will discuss a Lagrangian lamination which is obtained by the iteration.
