Title: Noncommutative geometry and mirror symmetry
Speaker: Dr. Pranav Pandit University of Pennsylvania
Date: 25 August 2008
Time: 4.00 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall - I, Dept. of Mathematics
I will outline an approach to noncommutative geometry, due largely to M. Kontsevich, where certain A-infinity categories play the role of spaces. This noncommutative geometry program draws much of its inspiration from homological mirror symmetry. The talk will be purely expository: it will not contain any new results.
