We consider mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds, and describe how one can recover the classification of 3-dimensional Fano manifolds from the study of their mirrors. We sketch a program to classify 4-dimensional Fano manifolds using these ideas.

We propose Gamma Conjectures for Fano manifolds which can be thought of as a square root of the index theorem. Studying the exponential asymptotics of solutions to the quantum differential equation, we associate a principal asymptotic class A_F to a Fano manifold F. We say that F satisfies Gamma Conjecture I if A_F equals the ...

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 ...

We collect a list of known four-dimensional Fano manifolds and compute their quantum periods. This list includes all four-dimensional Fano manifolds of index greater than one, all four-dimensional toric Fano manifolds, all four-dimensional products of lower-dimensional Fano manifolds, and certain complete intersections in projective bundles. ...

The quantum period of a variety X is a generating function for certain Gromov-Witten invariants of X which plays an important role in mirror symmetry. In this paper we compute the quantum periods of all 3-dimensional Fano manifolds. In particular we show that 3-dimensional Fano manifolds with very ample anticanonical bundle have mirrors given by ...

The asymptotic behaviour of solutions to the quantum differential equation of a Fano manifold F defines a characteristic class A_F of F, called the principal asymptotic class. Gamma conjecture of Vasily Golyshev and the present authors claims that the principal asymptotic class A_F equals the Gamma class G_F associated to Euler's Γ-function. We illustrate in ...

Consider a Laurent polynomial with real positive coefficients such that the origin is strictly inside its Newton polytope. Then it is strongly convex as a function of real positive argument. So it has a distinguished Morse critical point --- the unique critical point with real positive coordinates. As a consequence we obtain a positive answer ...

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 ...

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 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 exceptional collections of maximal length on four families of
surfaces of general type with $p_g=q=0$ which are isogenous to a product of
curves. From these constructions we obtain new examples of quasiphantom
categories as their orthogonal complements. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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
([BoDeO11] and [BoDeO13]). In this article we give a description of the local
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
