Asymptotic equivalence of symplectic capacities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A long-standing conjecture states that all normalized symplectic capacities coincide on the class of convex subsets of ℝ2n. In this note we focus on an asymptotic (in the dimension) version of this conjecture, and show that when restricted to the class of centrally symmetric convex bodies in ℝ2n, several symplectic capacities, including the Ekeland-Hofer-Zehnder capacity, the displacement energy capacity, and the cylindrical capacity, are all equivalent up to a universal constant.
