Topic:Symplectic topology and the Haydys-Witten equations
Speaker:Daniel Vitek

Date:Wednesday, April 26
Time/Room:1:00pm - 2:00pm/S-101

We'll discuss how dimensional reductions of the Haydys-Witten equations are connected to Haydys's definition of the Fukaya-Seidel category. Time permitting we'll touch on connections to Donaldson-Thomas's vision of higher-dimensional gauge theory.
