Special Program "Tropical Geometry and Topology"

July 1 – September 30, 2013
Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics, Bonn

organized by D. Grigoriev, I. Itenberg, H. Markwig and G. Mikhalkin

Four mini-courses will be organized during the program:

  • Erwan BrugallĂ©, "Tropical curves",
    July, Thu 13:30-14:30, the first lecture is on July 4.
    The aim of this mini-course is to give a basic introduction to tropical curves, with an emphasize on their applications to enumerative geometry.
  • Oleg Viro, "Topology of real algebraic and tropical varieties",
    July-August, Tue 10:30-11:30, the first lecture is on July 9.
    The purpose of lectures is to provide a broad and self-contained introduction to topology of real algebraic varieties and their tropical counter-parts.
  • Conan Leung: "SYZ mirror symmetry",
    Thu 13:30 - 14:45, the lecture dates are Aug 15, 22 and 29.
    In this lecture series, I explain the SYZ proposal which explains mirror symmetry as a duality between complex geometry and symplectic geometry via a fiberwise Fourier transformation along Lagrangian fibrations.
  • Sergei Galkin: "Geometry of Fano manifolds",
    Tue, September 10, 10:30 - 11:45,
    Thu, September 12, 13:30 - 14:45,
    Thu, September 19, 13:30 - 14:45 (MPIM Seminar Room),
    Tue, September 24, 10:30 - 11:45.
    I'll give a review on minimal model program, the special role that Fano varieties play in it, and the importance of rational curves for studying both, with a few occasional interludes into Gromov-Witten theory.


The mini-courses are designated to Ph.D. students, post-docs, and participants of the program. They will be complemented by a regular program seminar (Tue 16:30-17:30) and by a student seminar (Wed 14:30-16).

The program conference will take place from September 2 to September 6, 2013.
