Symplectic Geometry and Mirror Symmetry

Proceedings of the 4th KIAS Annual International Conference, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, Seoul, South Korea, 14-18 August 2000

Author: Kenji Fukaya

Publisher: World Scientific

Category: Mirror symmetry

In 1993, M Kontsevich proposed a conceptual framework for explaining the phenomenon of mirror symmetry. Mirror symmetry had been discovered by physicists in string theory as a duality between families of three-dimensional CalabiOCoYau manifolds. Kontsevich''s proposal uses Fukaya''s construction of the A Oex -category of Lagrangian submanifolds on the symplectic side and the derived category of coherent sheaves on the complex side. The theory of mirror symmetry was further enhanced by physicists in the language of D-branes and also by StromingerOCoYauOCoZaslow in the geometric set-up of (special) Lagrangian torus fibrations. It rapidly expanded its scope across from geometry, topology, algebra to physics. In this volume, leading experts in the field explore recent developments in relation to homological mirror symmetry, Floer theory, D-branes and GromovOCoWitten invariants. Kontsevich-Soibelman describe their solution to the mirror conjecture on the abelian variety based on the deformation theory of A Oex -categories, and Ohta describes recent work on the Lagrangian intersection Floer theory by FukayaOCoOhOCoOhtaOCoOno which takes an important step towards a rigorous construction of the A Oex -category. There follow a number of contributions on the homological mirror symmetry, D-branes and the GromovOCoWitten invariants, e.g. Getzler shows how the Toda conjecture follows from recent work of Givental, Okounkov and Pandharipande. This volume provides a timely presentation of the important developments of recent years in this rapidly growing field. Contents: Estimated Transversality in Symplectic Geometry and Projective Maps (D Auroux); Local Mirror Summetry and Five-Dimensional Gauge Theory (T Eguchi); The Toda Conjecture (E Getzler); Examples of Special Lagrangian Fibrations (M Gross); Linear Models of Supersymmetric D-Branes (K Hori); The Connectedness of the Moduli Space of Maps to Homogeneous Spaces (B Kim & R Pandharipande); Homological Mirror Symmetry and Torus Fibrations (M Kontsevich & Y Soibelman); Genus 1-Virasoro Conjecture on the Small Phase Space (X Liu); Obstruction to and Deformation of Lagrangian Intersection Floer Cohomology (H Ohta); Topological Open p-Branes (J-S Park); Lagrangian Torus Fibration and Mirror Symmetry of CalabiOCoYau Manifolds (W-D Ruan); More About Vanishing Cycles and Mutation (P Seidel); Moment Maps, Monodromy and Mirror Manifolds (R Thomas). Readership: Researchers and graduate students in differential geometry, topology and theoretical physics."

Looking for an Argument

Critical Encounters with the New Approaches to the Criticism of Shakespeare and His Contemporaries

Author: Richard Louis Levin

Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press

ISBN: 9780838639641

Category: Drama

Page: 309

View: 7469

This book collects a number of Richard Levin's essays, beginning with his well-known PMLA article of 1988 on Feminist Thematics and Shakespearean Tragedy and continuing through the 1990s, that examine and evaluate some of the most important aspects of the new critical approaches to the interpretations of the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries- principally the New Historicism, feminism, and revisionist versions of Marxism and Freudianism. In these essays he is looking not only for rational arguments in these approaches, but also for a rational argument with their practitioners, and therefore he reprints several of the responses that these essays have elicited (including th PMLA Forum letter signed by twenty-four people who objected to Feminist Thematics) along with his answers to them, which contribute to this critique of the present state of the discourse in this field.

Shakespeares ruhelose Welt

ISBN: 3406652883

Category: History

Page: 347

Während Shakespeare unvergängliche Werke wie «Romeo und Julia», «Hamlet» oder «Othello» schrieb, ging die Welt durch eine Epoche tiefgreifender Veränderungen. Seit der Entdeckung Amerikas hatten sich die Horizonte Europas dramatisch erweitert, die Reformation spaltete die Christenheit, ein ganzes Weltbild geriet ins Wanken. Neil MacGregor führt uns mitten hinein in diese aufregende Zeit – und mitten hinein in die Stücke William Shakespeares. Ob er uns das Schwert eines Edelmanns oder die Wollmütze eines Handwerksburschen, einen Glaskelch aus Venedig oder Münzen aus Marrakesch vorstellt – immer weiß Neil MacGregor in den zwanzig Kapiteln dieses Buches eines der Themen zu illuminieren, die Shakespeares Zeitalter prägten: die Globalisierung, die Glaubenskämpfe, die Pest, der Islam, die Magie – und uns zugleich vertraut zu machen mit einem der aufregendsten Dichter der Weltliteratur. Das Resultat ist ein hinreißend lebendiges, glänzend geschriebenes und in vielem überraschendes Portrait der gefährlich aufgewühlten Welt von William Shakespeare.
