Abstract: I will discuss recent joint work with Vinicius Gripp and Michael Hutchings relating the volume of any contact three-manifold to the length of certain finite sets of Reeb orbits. Our proof uses Taubes’ isomorphism between embedded contact homology and Seiberg-Witten Floer cohomology, which I will also review.
