Title: Dimer models and homological mirror symmetry
Date: Thu, Jul 11, 2013, 16:00 - 17:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: A dimer model is a bicolored graph on a real two-torus encoding the information of a quiver with relations.
It is a combinatorial object which is related to many branches of mathematics such as integrable systems, Calabi-Yau algebras, and Sasaki-Einstein manifolds.
In the talk, I will discuss the relation between dimer models and Kontsevich's conjectural description of the Fukaya category of a Stein manifold in terms of a sheaf of dg categories.
