Wall-crossing in Gromov-Witten and Landau-Ginzburg theory
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
The theory of quasi-maps, developed in recent work of Ciocan-Fontanine and Kim, is a generalization of Gromov-Witten theory that depends on an additional stability parameter varying over positive rational numbers. When that parameter tends to infinity, Gromov-Witten theory is recovered, while when it tends to zero, the resulting theory encodes information related to the "B-model." Ciocan-Fontanine and Kim proved a wall-crossing formula exhibiting how the theory changes with the stability parameter, and in this talk, we discuss an alternative proof of their result as well as a generalization to other gauged linear sigma models. This is joint work with Felix Janda and Yongbin Ruan.
