02-03-2017 CMSA Members’ Seminar

Hansol Hong, Harvard Title: Homological Mirror Functors Abstract: I will first give a brief introduction to mirror symmetry, which intertwines symplectic geometry and complex geometry of a pair of Kahler manifolds, and explain mirror construction using formal deformation of a Lagrangian submanifold.  We will see that counting of holomorphic discs bounding Lagrangian naturally gives rise to a mirror space (Landau-Ginzburg […]
