Dr. Mauro Porta talk
Speaker invited by: Prof. Dr. Joseph Ayoub
Date: 25.11.19 Time: 13.15 - 14.45 Room: Y27H25
In this talk I will survey recent ongoing work with Tony Yue Yu. Building on our previous foundational work, we construct and study a derived moduli space of rigid analytic stable maps into a smooth rigid variety. We show that the axioms of Gromov-Witten theory can be stated in terms of intuitive statements about these derived moduli spaces. The use of derived geometry allows very simple deductions of the axioms for quantum K-theory out of the geometric statements.
