Geometric Models for Calabi-Yau Algebras and Homological Mirror Symmetry

Project description

New connections between mirror symmetry, cluster algebras and representation theory

The field of mathematics provides a language with which to describe our universe. String theory, which postulates that particles are actually tiny vibrating strings, is one of the most promising frameworks to unify currently incompatible theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity. Mirror symmetry, a natural phenomenon, arose out of string theory, and homological mirror symmetry is one version of it. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the STABREP project is establishing new connections between mirror symmetry, cluster algebras and representation theory through the introduction of geometric models.
