Thesis title
:  Upper bounds for the Gromov Width of Coadjoint Orbits of Compact Lie Groups


I will show how to find an upper bound for the Gromov width of coadjoint orbits of compact Lie groups with respect to the Kirillov-Kostant-Souriau symplectic form by computing certain Gromov-Witten invariants. The approach presented here is closely related to the one used by Gromov in its celebrated Non-squeezing theorem.
