Spring School: Enumerative Invariants from Differential Graded Lie Algebras and Categories

Montegufoni Castle
Montegufoni Gardens
Spring School for Master & PhD students and Postdocs
March 25 - 31, 2018 in Italy http://www.montegufoni.it/
Senior Speakers:
Andrei Caldararu
Tim Perutz
Helge Ruddat (ruddat)
Tom Sutherland (sutherland)
Estelle Bonmann (ebonmann)
(respectively @uni-mainz.de)




Accepted participants will be provided shared rooms in the castle. We might be able to modestly subsidize travel costs by a lump sum per person.We will organize and prepare meals ourselves.Each participant will be asked to give a talk presenting material that we assign together beforehand. This will consist of works of Barannikov-Kontsevich, Costello-Li, Gross-Siebert and others.Sorry, the event has reached its participant capacity limit.Literature:

  1. Barannikov, Sergey; Kontsevich, Maxim: Frobenius Manifolds and Formality of Lie Algebras of Polyvector Fields.
  2. Caldararu, Andrei; Tu, Junwu: Computing a categorical Gromov-Witten invariant.
  3. Costello, Kevin J.; Li, Si: Quantum BCOV theory on Calabi-Yau manifolds and the higher genus B-model
  4. Ganatra, Sheel; Perutz, Timothy; Sheridan, Nick: Mirror symmetry - from categories to curve Counts.
  5. Mark Gross, Bernd Siebert: Intrinsic mirror symmetry and punctured Gromov-Witten invariants.

This school is funded by the DFG Emmy-Noether grant RU 1629/4-1.
