Title: Degenerations of Fano threefolds (towards exceptional collections)

Date: Sep 3, 2008, 11:30 - 12:30

Place: Seminar room at Prefab.B, IPMU, Kashiwa

We will discuss small degenerations of smooth Fano threefolds (like V5) to toric nodal Fano threefolds and some applications of these for computing Gromov-Witten invariants and constructing exceptional collections on the primary smooth threefolds.
