\(A_\infty \) functors for Lagrangian correspondences



We construct \(A_\infty \) functors between Fukaya categories associated to monotone Lagrangian correspondences between compact symplectic manifolds. We then show that the composition of \(A_\infty \) functors for correspondences is homotopic to the functor for the composition, in the case that the composition is smooth and embedded.
