Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Quantum Cohomology, Intersection Cohomology and Integrable Systems

Speaker: Michael McBreen, EPFL Lausanne

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 201

Date: Thursday, January 29, 2015, 3:30 p.m.


This talk will describe joint work with Nick Proudfoot. We describe a surprising connection between quantum cohomology and intersection cohomology for symplectic resolutions. I will explain how, in an important special case, this relates to the Calogero-Moser system in the limit where all particles collide.
