Title: Exponential Integrals Speaker:  Maxim Kontsevich Date: Tuesady, August 19, 2014 Time: 11:00am-12:15pm Place: Auditorium 103, Simons Center [box, type=”download”]Watch the video.[/box] Abstract: I’ll discuss general properties of integrals of exponents of polynomial functions on complex algebraic varieties, and infinite-dimensional generalizations. In particular, I’ll give a new interpretation of the solution of Hitchin equation as semi-infinite cohomology.
