Title: On the shifted symplectic structure of a mapping space
Date (JST): Thu, Feb 09, 2023, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Hybrid
Abstract: The talk begins with recognizing shifted symplectic structures in familiar examples. Variants of mapping spaces will be discussed, e.g., space of maps twisted by a line bundle, and maps from a curve with marked points to various targets. I will also discuss my work in progress joint with Yalong Cao, where we apply the construction to study quantum cohomology of quiver with potentials.
