Homological Mirror Symmetry and Birational GeometrySpecial Events
|Speaker:||Ludmil Katzarkov, University California Irvine, U of M|
|Start time:||Mon, Feb 13 2006, 4:10PM|
In this talk we will introduce Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS). After considering some examples we will demonstrate how can HMS be used in solving classical problems in Algebraic Geometry - nonrationality of conic bundles and nonrationality of four dimensional cubic.
