A compact semi-toric system on a compact four dimensional symplectic manifold can be thought of as a Hamiltonian $S^1 \times \mathbb{R}$-action whose singular orbits are non-degenerate in a symplectic Morse-Bott sense. Introduced by Vu Ngoc and classified under a mild genericity assumption by Pelayo and Vu Ngoc, these systems lie at the crossroads of completely integrable Hamiltonian systems, symplectic toric manifolds and Hamiltonian $S^1$-spaces (by restricting the action to $S^1$). This talk studies the relation between compact semi-toric systems and Hamiltonian $S^1$-spaces, the latter classified by Karshon, with two motivating questions:
1. What is the minimal set of invariants of compact semi-toric systems needed to reconstruct those of the underlying Hamiltonian $S^1$-space?
2. Which Hamiltonian $S^1$-spaces arise as those underlying a compact semi-toric system?
