Foliated Open Books ---or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About How to Glue Open Books

Please join us for lunch after the talk.
In this talk, I'll discuss recent joint work with Vera Vertesi to develop a new version of an open book decomposition for contact three-manifolds. Our foliated open books join a zoo of existing types of open books, so I'll focus on the senses in which ours is a natural construction which provides a user-friendly approach to cutting and gluing.
