Title: Stein traces
Every Legendrain knot leaves a traces in the 4-dimensional symplectic world. In this talk we will investigate whetheer a 4-dimensional tracker (with the necessary mathematical education) can determine the 3-dimensional creature that left the trace. This is based on joint work with Roger Casals and John Etnyre.
