In 1995, Chekanov came up with the first example of monotone Lagrangian torus not Hamiltonian isotopic to the product torus $\times_n S1 \subset \Cn$, also called Clifford torus. Both tori also has its manifestation in $\CPn$ (and other compactifications of $\Cn $).

One technique to distinguish between monotone Lagrangian tori is via the count of (Maslov index 2) J-holomorphic discs. We will define the Clifford and Chekanov tori in $\C2 $ and $\CP2 $, and count the (Maslov index 2) holomorphic discs they bound.

We will not assume any knowledge of symplectic geometry and provide all necessary definitions in the talk.
