Derived Azumaya Algebras and Twisted K-theory

Topological K-theory of dg-categories is a localizing invariant of dg-categories over  \mathbb{C} taking values in the  \infty -category of  KU -modules. In this talk I describe a relative version of this construction; namely for X a quasi-compact, quasi-separated  \mathbb{C} -scheme I construct a functor valued in the  \infty -category of sheaves of spectra on  X(\mathbb{C}) , the complex points of X. For inputs of the form \operatorname{Perf}(X, A) where A is an Azumaya algebra over X, I characterize the values of this functor in terms of the twisted topological K-theory of  X(\mathbb{C}) . From this I deduce a certain decomposition, for  X a finite CW-complex equipped with a bundle  P of projective spaces over  X , of  KU(P) in terms of the twisted topological K-theory of  X  ; this is a topological analogue of a result of Quillen’s on the algebraic K-theory of Severi-Brauer schemes.

A conjecture of Grothendieck and Serre on principal bundles in mixed characteristic

Let G be a reductive group scheme over a regular local ring R. An old conjecture of Grothendieck and Serre predicts that such a principal bundle is trivial, if it is trivial over the fraction field of R. The conjecture has recently been proved in the "geometric" case, that is, when R contains a field. In the remaining case, the difficulty comes from the fact, that the situation is more rigid, so that a certain general position argument does not go through. I will discuss this difficulty and a way to circumvent it to obtain some partial results.

Juliette Bruce

Asymptotic Syzygies in the Semi-Ample Setting

In recent years numerous conjectures have been made describing the asymptotic Betti numbers of a projective variety as the embedding line bundle becomes more ample. I will discuss recent work attempting to generalize these conjectures to the case when the embedding line bundle becomes more semi-ample. (Recall a line bundle is semi-ample if a sufficiently large multiple is base point free.) In particular, I will discuss how the monomial methods of Ein, Erman, and Lazarsfeld used to prove non-vanishing results on projective space can be extended to prove non-vanishing results for products of projective space.

Computing a categorical Gromov-Witten invariant

In his 2005 paper "The Gromov-Witten potential associated to a TCFT" Kevin Costello described a procedure for recovering an analogue of the Gromov-Witten potential directly out of a cyclic A-inifinity algebra or category. Applying his construction to the derived category of sheaves of a complex projective variety provides a definition of higher genus B-model Gromov-Witten invariants, independent of the BCOV formalism. This has several advantages. Due to the categorical invariance of these invariants, categorical mirror symmetry automatically implies classical mirror symmetry to all genera. Also, the construction can be applied to other categories like categories of matrix factorization, giving a direct definition of FJRW invariants, for example.

In my talk I shall describe the details of the computation (joint with Junwu Tu) of the invariant, at g=1, n=1, for elliptic curves. The result agrees with the predictions of mirror symmetry, matching classical calculations of Dijkgraaf. It is the first non-trivial computation of a categorical Gromov-Witten invariant.
