Mirror Symmetry seminar

A learning seminar on the mathematical aspects of 2D Mirror Symmetry, particularly the Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS) conjecture. We will meet on Tuesdays from 14:00-17:00 in the QM Seminar Room. It is also registered as the course Advanced topics in geometry and topology as a PhD course in SDU.

Anyone is welcome to attend and/or give talks. Graduate students are required to give a talk to receive credit. If you want to join, please contact me directly. A rough outline of the schedule of the talks is given below. This schedule may be subject to change.
