# $\hat{G}$-invariant quasimorphisms and symplectic geometry of surfaces

@article{Kawasaki2019hatGinvariantQA, title={\$\hat\{G\}\$-invariant quasimorphisms and symplectic geometry of surfaces}, author={Morimichi Kawasaki and Mitsuaki Kimura}, journal={arXiv: Symplectic Geometry}, year={2019} }

Let $\hat{G}$ be a group and $G$ its normal subgroup. In this paper, we study $\hat{G}$-invariant quasimorphisms on $G$ which appear in symplectic geometry and low dimensional topology. As its application, we prove the non-existence of a section of the flux homomorphism on closed surfaces of higher genus. We also prove that Py's Calabi quasimorphism and Entov-Polterovich's partial Calabi quasimorphism are non-extendable to the group of symplectomorphisms. We show that Py's Calabi quasimorphism… Expand
