Mathematical Physics Seminar, Mondays

The seminar on mathematical physics will be held on select Mondays and Wednesdays from 12 – 1pm in CMSA Building, 20 Garden Street, Room G10. This year’s Seminar will be organized by Bogdan Stoica and Tsung-ju Lee.

The list of speakers for the upcoming academic year will be posted below and updated as details are confirmed. Titles and abstracts for the talks will be added as they are received.

Title: Log Gromov–Witten invariants via degenerations

Abstract: A classical question in algebraic geometry asks to count the number of plane curves of degree d meeting a smooth elliptic curve in a single point tangent to order 3d. This question is best reformulated in terms of log Gromov–Witten invariants which I will introduce. By considering the degeneration of the elliptic curve to the toric boundary Navid Nabijou and I provide a localisation formalism to count these curves. We uncover a refined set of enumerative invariants which we believe are related to certain scattering diagram calculations. If time permits I will explain what happens in higher dimension.

Title: On product identities and the Chow rings of holomorphic symplectic varieties

Abstract: For a moduli space $M$ of stable sheaves over a K3 surface $X$, we propose a series of conjectural identities in the Chow rings $CH_\star (M \times X^\ell),\, \ell \geq 1,$ generalizing the classic Beauville–Voisin identity for a K3 surface. We emphasize consequences of the conjecture for the structure of the tautological subring $R_\star (M) \subset CH_\star (M).$ We prove the proposed identities when $M$ is the Hilbert scheme of points on a K3 surface. This is based on joint work with L. Flapan, A. Marian and R. Silversmith.
