Given a Laurent polynomial f, one can form the period of f: this is a function of one complex variable that plays an important role in mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds. Mutations are a particular class of birational transformations acting on Laurent polynomials in two variables; they preserve the period and are closely connected with cluster algebras. We propose a higher-dimensional analog of mutation acting on Laurent polynomials f in n variables. In particular we give a combinatorial description of mutation acting on the Newton polytope P of f, and use this to establish many basic facts about mutations. Mutations can be understood combinatorially in terms of Minkowski rearrangements of slices of P, or in terms of piecewise-linear transformations acting on the dual polytope P* (much like cluster transformations). Mutations map Fano polytopes to Fano polytopes, preserve the Ehrhart series of the dual polytope, and preserve the period of f. Finally we use our results to show that Minkowski polynomials, which are a family of Laurent polynomials that give mirror partners to many three-dimensional Fano manifolds, are connected by a sequence of mutations if and only if they have the same period.

Mark Haiman has reduced Macdonald positivity conjecture to a statement about geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points on the plane, and formulated a generalization of the conjectures where the symmetric group is replaced by the wreath product $S_n\ltimes (Z/r Z)^n$. He has proven the original conjecture by establishing the geometric statement about the Hilbert ...

In this note, we extend the results of arxiv:1111.2266 and arxiv:1203.1583 to the non simply laced case. To this end we introduce and study the twisted zastava spaces. ...

We construct 4 different families of smooth Fano fourfolds with Picard rank 1, which contain cylinders, i.e., Zariski open subsets of the form Z x A1, where Z is a quasiprojective variety. The affi ne cones over such a fourfold admit eff ective Ga-actions. Similar constructions of cylindrical Fano threefolds were done previously in our ...

We consider the isomonodromy problems for flat $G$-bundles over punctured
elliptic curves $\Sigma_\tau$ with regular singularities of connections at
marked points. The bundles are classified by their characteristic classes.
These classes are elements of the second cohomology group
$H^2(\Sigma_\tau,{\mathcal Z}(G))$, where ${\mathcal Z}(G)$ is the center of
$G$. For any complex simple Lie group $G$ and arbitrary class we define ...

In this paper, we show that bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves (considered as DG categories) on separated schemes of finite type over a field of characteristic zero are homotopically finitely presented. This confirms a conjecture of Kontsevich. The proof uses categorical resolution of singularities of Kuznetsov and Lunts, which is based on the ordinary ...

In this article, we investigate some properties of cyclic coverings of complex surfaces of general type branched along smooth curves that are numerically equivalent to a multiple of the canonical class. The main results concern coverings of surfaces of general type with p_g=0 and Miyaoka--Yau surfaces; in particular, they provide new examples of multicomponent moduli ...

In \cite{Ku0}, the ambiguity index $a_{(G,O)}$ was introduced for each
equipped finite group $(G,O)$. It is equal to the number of connected
components of a Hurwitz space parametrizing coverings of a projective line with
Galois group $G$ assuming that all local monodromies belong to conjugacy
classes $O$ in $G$ and the number of branch points is greater than some
constant. ...

A k-isogeny class of abelian varieties over a finite field k is uniquely determined by the Weil polynomial f of any variety from this class. When we consider classification problems concerning abelian varieties inside an isogeny class, the classification can be given in terms of the corresponding Weil polynomial. In this paper we improve our ...

We define the triangulated category of relative singularities of a closed subscheme in a scheme. When the closed subscheme is a Cartier divisor, we consider matrix factorizations of the related section of a line bundle, and their analogues with locally free sheaves replaced by coherent ones. The appropriate exotic derived category of coherent matrix factorizations ...

Contraherent cosheaves are globalizations of cotorsion (or similar) modules over commutative rings obtained by gluing together over a scheme. The category of contraherent cosheaves over a scheme is a Quillen exact category with exact functors of infinite product. Over a quasi-compact semi-separated scheme or a Noetherian scheme of finite Krull dimension (in a different version ...

We construct quasi-phantom admissible subcategories in the derived category of coherent sheaves on the Beauville surface S. These quasi-phantoms subcategories appear as right orthogonals to subcategories generated by exceptional collections of maximal possible length 4 on S. We prove that there are exactly 6 exceptional collections consisting of line bundles (up to a twist) and these collections ...

We consider the systems of diffusion-orthogonal polynomials, defined in the
work [1] of D. Bakry, S. Orevkov and M. Zani and (particularly) explain why
these systems with boundary of maximal possible degree should always come from
the group, generated by reflections. Our proof works for the dimensions $2$ (on
which this phenomena was discovered) and $3$, and fails in ...

We establish faithfulness of braid group actions generated by twists along an ADE configuration of 22-spherical objects in a derived category. Our major tool is the Garside structure on braid groups of type ADE. This faithfulness result provides the missing ingredient in Bridgeland's description of a space of stability conditions associated to a Kleinian singularity. ...

For each del Pezzo surface $S$ with du Val singularities, we determine
whether it admits a $(-K_S)$-polar cylinder or not. If it allows one, then we
present an effective divisor $D$ that is $\mathbb{Q}$-linearly equivalent to
$-K_S$ and such that the open set $S\setminus\mathrm{Supp}(D)$ is a cylinder.
As a corollary, we classify all the del Pezzo surfaces with du ...

We prove that any compact K\"ahler 3-dimensional manifold which has no non-trivial complex subvarieties is a torus. This is a very special case of a general conjecture on the structure of 'simple manifolds', central in the bimeromorphic classification of compact K\"ahler manifolds. The proof follows from the Brunella pseudo-effectivity theorem, combined with fundamental results of ...

We consider 3 -periodic orbits in an elliptic billiard. Numerical experiments conducted by Dan Reznik have shown that the locus of the centers of inscribed circles of the corresponding triangles is an ellipse. We prove this fact by the complexification of the problem coupled with the complex law of reflection. ...

In the authors's previous work on symmetric differentials and their
connection to the topological properties of the ambient manifold, a class of
symmetric differentials was introduced: closed symmetric differentials

structure of closed symmetric 2-differentials on complex surfaces, with an
emphasis towards the local decompositions as products of ...

We study the geometry of equiclassical strata of the discriminant in the space of plane curves of a given degree, which are families of curves of given degree, genus and class (degree of the dual curve). Our main observation is that the use of duality transformation leads to a series of new sufficient conditions for ...

Drinfeld zastava is a certain closure of the moduli space of maps from the projective line to the Kashiwara flag scheme of an affine Lie algebra g^. In case g is the symplectic Lie algebra spN, we introduce an affine, reduced, irreducible, normal quiver variety Z which maps to the zastava space isomorphically in characteristic ...

We construct the so-called polar complex for an arbitrary locally free sheaf on a smooth variety over a field of characteristic zero. This complex is built from logarithmic forms on all irreducible subvarieties with values in a locally free sheaf. We prove that cohomology groups of the polar complex are canonically isomorphic to the cohomology ...
