11/7/2018 | Hossein Movasati, IMPA | Title: Hodge and Noether-Lefschetz loci
In the theoretical side another aim is to use the available tools in algebraic geometry and construct the moduli space of projective varieties enhanced with elements in their algebraic de Rham cohomology ring. These kind of moduli spaces have been useful in mathematical physics in order to describe the generating function of higher genus Gromov-Witten invariants, and it turns out that the Hodge loci in such moduli spaces are well-behaved, for instance, they are algebraic leaves of certain holomorphic foliations. Such foliations are constructed from the underlying Gauss-Manin connection. This lectures series involves many reading activities on related topics, and contributions by participants are most welcome. |
