REGISTRATION DEADLINE:No Need to Register
LOCATION:Zoom online conference
    Description

    This workshop contains several series talks and some lectures. It will concentrate on topics in gauged linear sigma models, derived categories of coherent sheaves, Fukaya categories and the homological mirror symmetry conjecture. The workshop intends to bring experts in the field to exchange ideas, and also to help graduate students to learn various categorical theories and dualities between them.

    1) Non-commutative  primitive forms of matrix factorizations, I

    Speaker: Prof. Junwu Tu, ShanghaiTech University

    Time: 15:50 pm (Beijing time), May 25th, Monday.

    Abstract:

    In this talk, we present an introduction to Non-commutative Hodge theory. 

    We shall sketch constructions of the main ingredients in the theory, such as Hochschild Homology, cyclic homology, Mukai pairing, Getzler’s connection, and so on.

    2) Non-commutative primitive forms of matrix factorizations, II

    Speaker: Prof. Junwu Tu, ShanghaiTech University

    Time:15:50 pm (Beijing time), May 27th, Wednsday.

    Abstract:

    In this talk, we study the Non-commutative Hodge theory in the case of matrix factorizations.This naturally leads to a categorical interpretation of K. Saito’s theory of primitive forms. This allows us to generalize Saito’s theory to the orbifold case.

    3)Topic: Non-commutative primitive forms and Gromov-Witten invariants

    Speaker:Prof. Lino Amorim (Kansas State University)

    Time:15:00 PM (Beijing time), May 29th, Friday

    Abstract: 

    I will describe a non-commutative analogue of Saito's theory of primitive forms. Under some conditions, this construction associates to a Calabi-Yau A-infinity category a Frobenius manifolds over its Hochschild homology. When applied to the Fukaya category, it is expected this construction recovers the (genus zero) Gromov-Witten invariants of the symplectic manifold. I’ll show this is indeed the case for most Fano toric manifolds, in particular projective spaces. This is joint work with Junwu Tu.

    Topic:The Deligne-Illusie method for Artin stacks

    Speaker:Artem Prikhodko (Higher School of Economics)

    Time:16:00 PM (Beijing time), Jun 3

    Abstract: Deligne-Illusie's method establishes degeneration of the Hodge-to-de Rham spectral sequence for smooth proper schemes in characteristic 0 by reduction to positive characteristic. In the talk, I will explain how to adapt this approach to Artin stacks. As an application we deduce equivariant Hodge-to-de Rham degeneration for a few families of varieties with algebraic group action. This is joint work with Dmitry Kubrak.

    Topic: Categorical smooth compactifications and generalized Hodge-to-de Rham degeneration


    Speaker:Alexander Efimov(Steklov Institute/Laboratory for Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms, HSE)

    Time:16:00 PM (Beijing time), Jun 10

    Abstract: 

    We disprove two (unpublished) conjectures of Kontsevich which state generalized versions of categorical Hodge-to-de Rham degeneration for smooth and for proper DG categories (but not smooth and proper, in which case degeneration is proved by Kaledin). In particular, we show that there exists a minimal $10$-dimensional $A_{\infty}$-algebra over a field of characteristic zero, for which the supertrace of $\mu_3$ on the second argument is non-zero.

    As a byproduct, we obtain an example of a homotopically finitely presented DG category (over a field of characteristic zero) that does not have a smooth categorical compactification, giving a negative answer to a question of To\"en.

    This can be interpreted as a lack of resolution of singularities in the noncommutative setup.We also obtain an example of a proper DG category which does not admit a categorical resolution of singularities in the terminology of Kuznetsov and Lunts (that is, it cannot be embedded into a smooth and proper DG category).

    Topic:Computing Symplectic Cohomology via Mirror Symmetry

    Speaker:Yanki Lekili (King's College London)

    Time:16:00 PM (Beijing time), Jun 17


    Abstract: Morse-Bott methods for determining symplectic cohomology lead to limited success. I will describe several cases, including Milnor fibers of Kleinian singularities, where we can prove homological mirror symmetry and use this to explicitly compute symplectic cohomology by algebro-geometric methods. This roundabout method ultimately leads to an easy algorithmic computation of symplectic cohomology for Milnor fibers of a general class of quasihomogeneous hypersurface singularities. The talk is based on joint work with Kazushi Ueda.

    Title: D-brane central charge and Landau-Ginzburg orbifolds

    Abstract:The D-brane central charge is a function on the the K-theory of a triangulated category and plays an essential role in Bridgeland stability. We are interested in the situation in which triangulated categories of different origin are related by a correspondence. The prominent example is Orlov's correspondence between a category of matrix factorizations coming from a Landau-Ginzburg orbifold and the derived category of coherent sheaves on the corresponding Calabi-Yau manifold. This situation has a nice description in physics in terms of the gauged linear sigma model. We propose a conjecture for an explicit formula for the D-brane central charge in the various regions of the Kaehler moduli space. We verify this conjecture for a large class of Landau-Ginzburg orbifolds.

    Title: D-brane central charge and Landau-Ginzburg orbifolds II

    Abstract:Last time we learned about the D-brane central charge in mathematics and physics, and we suggested to view it as a function on the stringy Kaehler moduli space of a variation of GIT quotients and their associated triangulated categories. This situation has a nice description in physics in terms of the gauged linear sigma model whose phases correspond to various regions of the Kaehler moduli space. This time we focus on the gauged linear sigma model and on the Landau-Ginzburg orbifold phase to compare the resulting D-brane central charge functions.
