Title:Algebraic properties of the quantum homology
Seminar:Job Candidate Talk
Speaker:Yaron Ostrover
Abstract:
The theory of quantum homology has been extensively studied in recent years, by mathematicians as well as physicists. The quantum homology algebra plays a fundamental role in symplectic geometry and has strong relations to many other fields such as algebraic geometry, integrable systems, and string theory. In this talk we will discuss certain algebraic properties of the quantum homology algebra and their applications. No previous knowledge on quantum homology is assumed. This talk is based on a joint work with Ilya Tyomkin.
