Review of homological mirror symmetry

July 5, 2010 University of Porto

Speaker: Maxim Kontsevich (about)
Abstract: Homological mirror symmetry conjecture relates symplectic geometry and complex geometry, via homological algebra.
Originally it was formulated in the realm of Calabi-Yau varieties, i.e. compact complex manifolds with Ricci-flat Kahler metric (and vanishing canonical class).
I'll give an overview of new types of examples, including both positive and negative canonical classes, singular varieties, etc..
