ics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSuppose we are given an algebraic surface equip
ped with an anti-holomorphic involution. From the symplectic viewpoint\, a
natural question to ask is: are there cohomologous anti-invariant symplec
tic forms on this manifold which are not isotopic within anti-invariant fo
rms? And\, if so\, how many? During the talk\, we will look at a particula
rly simple case of complex quadrics and do some explicit computations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Residual categories and quantum cohomology\nby Alexander Kuznetsov (S

ecture predicts that a smooth projective variety has a full exceptional co
llection in the derived category of coherent sheaves if and only if its bi
g quantum cohomology ring is generically semisimple. However\, the big qua
ntum cohomology is very hard to compute. We suggest a conjecture\, where t
he big quantum cohomology is replaced by the small quantum cohomology (whi
ch is much more easy to compute)\, and a full exceptional collection is re
placed by a semiorthogonal decomposition of a special form. We support thi
s conjecture by a number of examples provided by homogeneous varieties of
simple algebraic groups. This is a joint work with Maxim Smirnov.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Symplectic geometry of exact WKB analysis\nby Tatsuki Kuwagaki (IPMU)
as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA sheaf quantization i
s a sheaf associated to a Lagrangian brane. This sheaf conjecturally has i
nformation as much as Floer theory of the Lagrangian. On the other hand\,
exact WKB analysis is an analysis of differential equations containing \\h
bar (the Planck constant).\n\nIn this talk\, I will explain how to constru
ct a sheaf quantization over the Novikov ring of the spectral curve of an
\\hbar-differential equation by using exact WKB method. In the constructio
n\, one can see how (conjecturally) the convergence in WKB analysis is rel
ated to the convergence in Fukaya category. In degree 2\, there is an appl
ication to cluster theory: the sheaf quantization associates a cluster coo
rdinate which is the same as the Voros-Iwaki-Nakanishi-Fock-Goncharov coor
dinate. I will also mention about some relationships to Riemann-Hilbert co
rrespondence of D'Agnolo-Kashiwara and Kontsevich-Soibelman.\n

)\, together with the computation of the derived autoequivalence group of
a K3 surface of Picard rank one (Bayer--Bridgeland). For example\, it is p

morphisms which are smoothly isotopic to the identity) is infinitely-gener

category of spectra). I will explain a direct (geometric) way for defining
the Floer homotopy groups which completely bypasses stable homotopy theor

in-Thom construction. Time permitting\, I will also explain joint work in
progress with Blumberg for building a spectrum from the new point of view\

rst part of the talk will discuss work in https://arxiv.org/abs/1908.04227
on constructing a Donaldson-Fukaya-Seidel type category for the generaliz
ed SYZ mirror of a genus 2 curve. We will explain the categorical mirror c
orrespondence on the cohomological level. The key idea uses that a 4-torus
is SYZ mirror to a 4-torus. So if we view the complex genus 2 curve as a
hypersurface of a 4-torus V\, a mirror can be constructed as a symplectic
fibration with fiber given by the dual 4-torus V^. Hence on categories\, l
ine bundles on V are restricted to the genus 2 curve while fiber Lagrangia
ns of V^ are parallel transported over U-shapes in the base of the mirror.
Next we describe ongoing work with H. Azam\, H. Lee\, and C-C. M. Liu on
extending the result to a global statement\, namely allowing the complex a
nd symplectic structures to vary in their real six-dimensional families. T
he mirror statement for this more general result relies on work of A. Kana

DESCRIPTION:Title: Surface singularities and their deformations via principal bundles on el
liptic curves\nby Dougal Davis as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n
\nAbstract\nIt is well known that du Val (aka simple\, Kleinian\, ADE\, ..
.) singularities of algebraic surfaces are classified by Dynkin diagrams o
f type ADE. A geometric link between the singularity and the Lie algebra o
f the same type was given by Brieskorn in the 70s\, who showed that the si
ngularity can be recovered by intersecting the nilpotent cone inside the L
ie algebra with a transversal slice through a subregular nilpotent element
. Brieskorn's construction also realises the entire transversal slice as t
he total space of a miniversal deformation of the singularity. In this tal
k\, I will discuss an elliptic version of this story\, where the Lie algeb
ra is replaced with the stack of principal bundles on an elliptic curve. T
here is still a notion of subregular slice in this stack\, and one gets a
singular surface by intersecting such a thing with the locus of unstable b
undles. I will explain which surfaces arise in this way\, and in what sens
e the subregular slice is still the total space of a miniversal deformatio
n. Time permitting\, I will also touch on how the BCFG types are related t
o the ADE ones (in a different way to the story for Lie algebras!)\, and o
n some questions about Poisson structures and their quantisations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the geography of complex surfaces of general type with an arbitrary f
undamental group\nby Giancarlo Urzúa as part of Free Mathematics Semi
nar\n\n\nAbstract\nSurfaces of general type are lovely unclassifiable obje
cts in algebraic geometry. Geography refers to the problem of construction
of such surfaces for a given set of invariants\, classically the Chern nu
mbers \\(c_1^2\\) (self-intersection of canonical class) and \\(c_2\\) (to
pological Euler characteristic). In this talk\, we treat the question: Wha
t can be said about the distribution of Chern slopes \\(c_1^2/c_2\\) of su
rfaces of general type when we fix the fundamental group? It turns out tha
t there are various well-known constraints\, which will be pointed out dur
ing the talk\, but at least we can prove the following theorem (joint with
Sergio Troncoso): "Let \\(G\\) be the fundamental group of some nonsingul
ar complex projective variety. Then Chern slopes of surfaces of general t
ype with fundamental group isomorphic to \\(G\\) are dense in the interval
\\([1\,3]\\).". Remember that for complex surfaces of general type we hav
e that \\(c_1^2/c_2\\) is a rational number in \\([1/5\,3]\\)\, and so mos
t open questions now refer to slopes in \\([1/5\,1]\\). On the other hand\
, it is known that every finite group is the fundamental group of some non
singular projective variety\, and so a lot is going on for high slopes.\n

a specified\, base change stable\, class of morphisms S --- whose objects
are those of D and whose morphisms are "spans" in D\, one side of which be
longs to S --- will be familiar to practitioners of Grothendieck's theory
of motives. Perhaps less familiar is the fact that an obvious 2-categorica

Fukaya as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThis is a repor
t on my work in progress with Aliakbar Daemi\n\nWe are studying an SO(3) v
ersion of Atiyah-Floer conjecture relating Instanton Floer homology to Lag
rangian Floer homology\, via cobordism method. In the case when the moduli
space of flat connections on 3 manifold is an {\\it embedded} Lagrangian
submanifold of the space of flat connections on 2 manifold\, we can pertur
b Lipyanskiy type mixed moduli space using geometric perturbation. In the
case it is an immersed Lagrangian submanifold\, we need abstract perturbat
ion and virtual technique. The singularity of the instanton moduli space i
s wilder than the case of pseudo-holomorphic curve and we need certain `st
ratified' version of Kuranishi structure. I will explain how we can define
such a notion\, show the existence of such structure and use it to obtain
virtual fundamental chain.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Maurer-Cartan deformation of a Lagrangian\nby Hansol Hong as part of
Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Maurer-Cartan algebra of a La
grangian is the algebra that encodes the deformation of its Floer complex
as an A-infinity algebra. I will give a convenient description of the Maur
er-Cartan algebra through a natural homological algebra language\, and rel
ate it with (a version of) Koszul duality for the Floer complex. It helps
us to obtain the mirror-symmetry interpretation for the Maurer-Cartan defo
rmation and its locality in SYZ situation. Namely\, the Maurer-Cartan alge
bra provides a neighborhood of the point mirror to the Lagrangian\, which
varies in size depending on geometric types of Floer generators involved i
n the deformation.\n

the simplest example (corresponding to the DT theory of the A1 quiver) whi
ch leads via undergraduate mathematics to the gamma function. Then I will
explain how the same procedure applied to the DT theory of coherent sheave
s on the resolved conifold leads to a non-perturbative version of the Grom

there is time left at the end (which there never is) I will discuss recent
attempts to go beyond these results.\n

aniel Halpern-Leistner as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\n
Every vector bundle on a smooth curve has a canonical filtration\, called
the Harder-Narasimhan filtration\, and the moduli of all vector bundles ad
mits a stratification based on the properties of the Harder-Narasimhan fil
tration at each point. The theory of Theta-stratifications formulates this
structure on a general algebraic stack. I will discuss how to characteriz
e stratifications of this kind\, and why their local cohomology is particu
larly well-behaved. I will then explain how Theta-stratifications are part
of a recent proof of a case of the D-equivalence conjecture: for any proj
ective Calabi-Yau manifold X that is birationally equivalent to a moduli s
pace of semistable coherent sheaves on a K3 surface\, the derived category
of coherent sheaves on X is equivalent to the derived category of this mo
duli space. This confirms a prediction from homological mirror symmetry fo

Bökstedt\, we conclude that the stable Lagrangian Gauss map of L vanishes
on all homotopy groups. In particular when M is a homotopy sphere\, we ob

ll explain the proof of homological mirror symmetry where the B-side is a
ring or chain of stacky projective lines joined nodally\, and where each i
rreducible component is allowed to have a non-trivial generic stabiliser\,
generalising the work of Lekili and Polishchuk. The key ingredient is to
match categorical resolutions on the A- and B-sides with an intermediary c
ategory given by the derived category of modules of a gentle algebra. I wi
ll begin by explaining how to construct this category from the data of the
A- and B-models before moving on to applications. In particular\, one can
show homological mirror symmetry where the B-model is taken to be an inve
rtible polynomial in two variables\, but where the grading group is not ne
cessarily maximal. In the maximally graded case the mirror is shown to be
graded symplectomorphic to the Milnor fibre of the transpose invertible po

DESCRIPTION:Title: Separating periods of quartic surfaces\nby Emre Sertöz as part of F
ree Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nKontsevich--Zagier periods form a n
atural number system that extends the algebraic numbers by adding constant
s coming from geometry and physics. Because there are countably many perio
ds\, one would expect it to be possible to compute effectively in this num
ber system. This would require an effective height function and the abilit
y to separate periods of bounded height\, neither of which are currently p
ossible.\n\nIn this talk\, we introduce an effective height function for p
eriods of quartic surfaces defined over algebraic numbers. We also determi
ne the minimal distance between periods of bounded height on a single surf
ace. We use these results to prove heuristic computations of Picard groups
that rely on approximations of periods. Moreover\, we give explicit Liouv
ille type numbers that can not be the ratio of two periods of a quartic su
rface. This is joint work with Pierre Lairez (Inria\, France).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Singular Hochschild cohomology and reconstruction of singularities\n
by Bernhard Keller as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe s
how that under a mild regularity assumption\, singular Hochschild cohomolo
gy (also known as Tate-Hochschild cohomology) identifies with Hochschild c
ohomology of the (dg enhanced) singularity category. In joint work with Zh
eng Hua\, we apply this to the reconstruction of a (complete isolated) com
pound Du Val singularity from its contraction algebra together with the ad
ditional datum of a class in its zeroth Hochschild homology. This provides
some evidence towards a conjecture by Donovan-Wemyss according to which t
he contraction algebra alone determines such a singularity.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lagrangian links on surfaces and the Calabi invariant\nby Ivan Smith
as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe identity component
in the group of area-preserving homeomorphisms of a compact surface admit
s a `mass-flow’ (or flux) homomorphism to the reals. We will prove that
the kernel of this homomorphism is not simple (extending earlier results
of Cristofaro-Gardiner\, Humilière and Seyfaddini in the genus zero case)
\, resolving a question of Fathi from the late 1970s. The proof appeals t
o a new family of Lagrangian spectral invariants associated to Lagrangian
links on the surface\, which are used to probe the small-scale geometry of
the surface\; their crucial feature is that they can be used to recover t
he classical Calabi invariant of a Hamiltonian. The Floer cohomology theo
ry behind these spectral invariants is a close cousin of the knot Floer ho
mology of Ozsváth-Szabó and Rasmussen. This talk reports on joint work

t Varolgunes (University of Edinburgh) as part of Free Mathematics Seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nConsider a positively monotone closed symplectic manifold
$M$ and a symplectic simple crossings divisor $D$ in it. Assume that the P
oincare dual of the anti-canonical class is a positive rational linear com
bination of the classes $[D_i]$\, where $D_i$ are the components of $D$ wi
th their symplectic orientation. A choice of such coefficients\, called th
e weights\, (roughly speaking) equips $M-D$ with a Liouville structure. I
will start by discussing results relating the symplectic cohomology of $M-
D$ with quantum cohomology of $M$. These results are particularly sharp wh
en the weights are all at most 1 (hypothesis A). Then\, I will discuss cer

DESCRIPTION:Title: The birational geometry of noncommutative surfaces\nby Eric Rains as

geometry\, the theory of smooth projective surfaces is\, of course\, very
highly developed\, with a major result being the birational classification
of such surfaces. For the noncommutative analogue\, much less is known\,
with even the notion of "birational" not being very well understood. In pa
rticular\, although several constructions have been known (noncommutative
projective planes\, noncommutative ruled surfaces\, and noncommutative blo
wups)\, many basic isomorphisms have proved elusive (e.g.\, that blowups i
n distinct points commute). I'll discuss a new approach to the problem via
derived categories that not only makes it easy to construct the desired i
somorphisms but also to prove a number of other results\, in particular th
at anything birational to a ruled surface is either ruled or a projective
plane\, and the corresponding moduli spaces of simple sheaves are Poisson\

dex 1 and 2 have been constructed by Bayer\, Lahoz\, Macrì and Stellari\,
making possible to study moduli spaces of stable objects and their geomet
ric properties. In this talk we investigate the action of the Serre functo
r on these stability conditions. In the index 2 case and in the case of GM
threefolds\, we show that they are Serre-invariant. Then we prove a gener
al criterion which ensures the existence of a unique Serre-invariant stabi

apply these results to the study of moduli spaces in the case of a cubic t
hreefold X. In particular\, we prove the smoothness of moduli spaces of st
able objects in the Kuznetsov component of X and the irreducibility of the
moduli space of stable Ulrich bundles on X. These results come from joint

DESCRIPTION:Title: Holomorphic Floer Theory and the Fueter Equation\nby Semon Rezchikov
as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Lagrangian Floer h
omology of a pair of holomorphic Lagrangian submanifolds of a hyperkahler
manifold is expected to simplify\, by work of Solomon-Verbitsky and others
. This occurs in part because\, in this setting\, the symplectic action fu
nctional\, the gradient flow of which computes Lagrangian Floer homology\,
is the real part of a holomorphic function. As noted by Haydys\, thinking
of this holomorphic function as a superpotential on an infinite-dimension
al symplectic manifold gives rise to a quaternionic analog of Floer's equa
tion for holomorphic strips: the Fueter equation. I will explain how this
line of thought gives rise to a `complexification' of Floer's theorem iden
tifying Fueter maps in cotangent bundles to Kahler manifolds with holomorp
hic planes in the base. This complexification has a conjectural categorica
l interpretation\, giving a model for Fukaya-Seidel categories of Lefshetz
fibrations\, which should have algebraic implications for the study of Fu
kaya categories. This is a report on upcoming joint work with Aleksander D

DESCRIPTION:Title: Perverse Schobers and 2-Categorical 3d Mirror Symmetry\nby Justin Hi
lburn as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\n3d mirror symmetr
y predicts an equivalence between 2-categories associated to dual holomorp
hic symplectic stacks. The first 2-category is of an algebro-geometric fla
vor and has constructions due to Kapustin/Rozansky/Saulina and Arinkin. Th
e second category depends on symplectic topology and has a conjectural des
cription in terms of the 3d generalized Seiberg-Witten equations (also kno
wn as the gauged Fueter equations). \n\nIn this talk I will describe joint
work with Ben Gammage and Aaron Mazel-Gee proving a variant of 3d mirror
symmetry for Gale dual toric cotangent stacks. In particular\, we define a
combinatorial model for the symplectic 2-category using equivariant perve
rse schobers. If time permits I will explain work in progress extending ou
r equivalence from toric cotangent stacks to hypertoric varieties. This wi
ll provide a categorification of previous results on Koszul duality for hy
pertoric categories O.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Knots\, minimal surfaces and J-holomorphic curves\nby Joel Fine as p
art of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet K be a knot or link in
the 3-sphere\, thought of as the ideal boundary of hyperbolic 4-space\, H^
4. The main theme of my talk is that it should be possible to count minima
l surfaces in H^4 which fill K and obtain a link invariant. In other words
\, the count doesn’t change under isotopies of K. When one counts minima
l disks\, this is a theorem. Unfortunately there is currently a gap in the
proof for more complicated surfaces. I will explain “morally” why the
result should be true and how I intend to fill the gap. In fact\, this (c
urrently conjectural) invariant is a kind of Gromov—Witten invariant\, c
ounting J-holomorphic curves in a certain symplectic 6-manifold diffeomorp
hic to S^2xH^4. The symplectic structure becomes singular at infinity\, in
directions transverse to the S^2 fibres. These singularities mean that bo
th the Fredholm and compactness theories have fundamentally new features\,
which I will describe. Finally\, there is a whole class of infinite-volum
e symplectic 6-manifolds which have singularities modelled on the above si
tuation. I will explain how it should be possible to count J-holomorphic c
urves in these manifolds too\, and obtain invariants for links in other 3-
manifolds.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Realising perfect derived categories of Auslander algebras of type A as
Fukaya-Seidel categories\nby Ilaria di Dedda as part of Free Mathemati
cs Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe theme of this talk will be to build a bridge
between two areas of mathematics: representation theory and symplectic ge
ometry. Our objects of interest on the representation theoretical side are
Auslander algebras of type A. This family of non-commutative algebras ari
ses very naturally as endomorphism algebras of indecomposable modules of q
uivers of finite type. They were given a symplectic interpretation by Dyck
erhoff-Jasso-Lekili\, who proved the equivalence (as $A_{\\infty}$-categor
ies) between perfect derived categories of Auslander algebras of type A an
d certain partially wrapped Fukaya categories. We use their result to prov
e an equivalence between the categories in question and the Fukaya-Seidel
categories of a certain family of Lefschetz fibrations. In this talk\, we
will observe this result in some key examples.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Fixed point Floer cohomology of a Dehn twist in a monotone setting and i
n more general contexts\nby Riccardo Pedrotti as part of Free Mathemat
ics Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk we will talk about the fixed point
Floer cohomology of a Dehn twist. Nowadays there are several methods to c
ompute it\, for example by using the Seidel exact triangle. Inspired by an
early result of P. Seidel (1996) for twists on surfaces\, we gave an expl
icit description of the Floer cohomology of a Dehn twist in terms of Morse
cohomology of some “sub-quotients” of M. The main step will be to use
a neck-stretching argument to establish some energy lower bounds on certa
in trajectories realising differentials. We will start by studying the rat
her restricting yet convenient “strongly - monotone” case and then sho
w how to generalise it to more general settings using an energy filtration
argument due to K. Ono. Time permitting\, we will sketch an application o
f our techniques in the context of ongoing joint work with T. Perutz\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Stein traces\nby Marc Kegel as part of Free Mathematics Seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nEvery Legendrian knot leaves a traces in the 4-dimensional symp
lectic world. In this talk we will investigate whether a 4-dimensional tra
cker (with the necessary mathematical education) can determine the 3-dimen
sional creature that left the trace. This is based on joint work with Roge
r Casals and John Etnyre.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Thomas-Yau conjecture\nby Yang Li as part of Free Mathematics Se
minar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Thomas-Yau conjecture is an open-ended program to
relate special Lagrangians to stability conditions in Floer theory\, but
the precise notion of stability is subject to many interpretations. I will
focus on the exact case (Stein Calabi-Yau manifolds)\, and deal only with
almost calibrated Lagrangians. We will discuss how the existence of desta
bilising exact triangles obstructs special Lagrangians\, under some additi
onal assumptions\, using the technique of integration over moduli spaces.\
