Algebraic Geometry Seminar
Quantum Cohomology, Intersection Cohomology and Integrable Systems
Speaker: Michael McBreen, EPFL Lausanne
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 201
Date: Thursday, January 29, 2015, 3:30 p.m.
This talk will describe joint work with Nick Proudfoot. We describe a surprising connection between quantum cohomology and intersection cohomology for symplectic resolutions. I will explain how, in an important special case, this relates to the Calogero-Moser system in the limit where all particles collide.
