Pedro Salomão

Visiting Professor of Mathematics


Pedro A. S. Salomão is a Visiting Professor of Mathematics at NYU Shanghai. Salomão is also a faculty member at the University of São Paulo. His research interests are largely toward understanding global properties of conservative dynamical systems, utilizing recently developed methods in symplectic topology. This research area has now been called Symplectic Dynamics. Salomão has been using pseudo-holomorphic curves to study the existence of global surfaces section and transverse foliations, constructing algebraic invariants that detect periodic orbits and, more recently, estimating systolic ratios of Reeb flows.
