Mini-course: Fukaya Categories and Mirror Symmetry

Denis Auroux
Ecole Normale Supérieure, Salle W
Fridays Sept. 26, Oct. 10, and Oct. 17, 2014

This mini-course (3×3 hours) will aim to give a brief introduction to Fukaya categories and the symplectic geometry of mirror symmetry, especially focusing on homological mirror symmetry and the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture; the main goal is to give a flavor of the material, and we will omit a lot of technical detail.

The course will meet at Ecole Normale Supérieure (45 rue d'Ulm, DMA, 4th floor, salle W) on Fridays Sept 26 and Oct 10 (11:00-12:30 and 14:00-15:30) and Friday Oct 17 (13:30-15:00 and 15:30-17:00).

The lectures will be either in French or in English depending on the audience.

1. Friday Sept. 26, 11:00-12:30 and 14:00-15:30: Lagrangian Floer homology and Fukaya categories.

2. Friday Oct. 10, 11:00-12:30 and 14:00-15:30: Fukaya categories and homological mirror symmetry.

3. Friday Oct. 17, 13:30-15:00 and 15:30-17:00: Lagrangian torus fibrations and the SYZ conjecture.
