Equivariant Quantum Cohomology, Mirror Symmetry, and Symplectic Geometry Workshop, May 16, 2011 – May 20, 2011

Dates: May 16-20, 2011
Location: Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, SUNY Stony BrookOrganizers: Dennis Auroux, Ludmil Katzarkov, Paul Seidel

The broad aim of the workshop is to address recent developments involving equivariant structures in mirror symmetry. These developments come from quantum cohomology and symplectic topology, and have further ramifications in representation theory and in the theory of knot invariants. We hope to create an environment which facilitates both the exchange of existing knowledge and further thinking about open issues or future directions.

Further information will be posted here as it becomes available. For enquiries, please email seidel@math.mit.edu.
