Title: Gamma conjectures for Fano manifolds
Date: 10:30-11:30, March 6, 2014
Place: B-model aspects of Gromov-Witten theory, University of Michigan
In this talk I will describe joint work with Vasily Golyshev and Hiroshi Iritani. We associate a characteristic class to a Fano manifold (or monotone symplectic manifold) as a limit of a solution (J-function) to the quantum differential equation. We say that a Fano manifold satisfies Gamma Conjecture if the characteristic class equals the Gamma class. I will explain relationships to (homological) mirror symmetry and Dubrovin conjecture, and sketch a proof for Grassmannians.
