Pure Maths Colloquium: Derived categories of sheaves in mirror symmetry

Presented by "Balázs Szendröi (University of Warwick, Coventry)",

23 April 2001 00:00 in CM221

"After a brief introduction to mirror symmetry, I will explain how derived categories enter the picture via Kontsevich' homological mirror symmetry conjecture. I will show how this leads to families of derived equivalences realizing the mapping class group of the mirror manifold, to faithful braid group actions on categories a la Seidel and Thomas, and to other delicacies."
