Amanda Hirschi will give a seminar talk titled "Global Kuranishi charts and a localisation formula in symplectic GW theory"

Abstract: I will briefly describe the construction of a global Kuranishi chart for moduli spaces of stable pseudoholomorphic maps and show how this allows for a straightforward definition of sympletic GW invariants. Subsequently, I will describe how to extend this to the equivariant setting and sketch the proof of a localisation formula for the equivariant GW invariants of a Hamiltonian manifold. This is partially joint work with Mohan Swaminathan.

This is a seminar in our Geometry and Topology seminar series.
