Title: Quantum cohomology algebra of toric Fano manifolds contains a field as a direct summand

Date: Sep 27, 2013, 11:50 - 12:50

Place: Euler Institute, Saint Petersburg

Laurent polynomial mirror dual to a toric Fano manifold is a convex function in real logarithmic coordinates. This helps to answer positively a question of Ostrover and Tyomkin, and moreover gives a good evidence that for any (possibly non-toric) Fano manifold its quantum cohomology algebra contains a field as a direct summand.
