"Lagrangian embeddings, rational convexity, and approximation"

A celebrated theorem of Duval and Sibony characterizes rationally convex real submanifolds in complex Euclidean spaces as those isotropic with respect to a Kahler form. I will discuss how the results in symplectic geometry can be used to obtain some new results in the approximation theory.
