Title: Brane bricks and mirror symmetry for hypersurfaces
Date: Wed, Mar 07, 2018, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Due to a localization result of Ganatra-Pardon-Shende, we can understand the category of A-branes on a symplectic manifold through the geometry of its skeleton. Applying this approach to affine hypersurfaces, we describe two proofs of homological mirror symmetry, and explain relation to the theory of brane tilings.
