Abstract: Assuming some fundamental results from convex hypersurface theory, I will explain an h-principle for contact submanifolds. The h-principle of Borman-Eliashberg-Murphy for the existence of contact structures will be an immediate corollary. For this talk, I will assume basic familiarity with contact topology but nothing from my previous talks. Joint work with Ko Honda.
