## Abstracts

### Andrei Caldararu

Several years ago Tom Bridgeland suggested that there should exist interesting chain maps C_*(M_{g,n}) -> C_{*+2}(M_{g,n+1}) and he conjectured some applications of these maps to mirror symmetry. I shall present a precise definition of these maps using techniques from the theory of ribbon graphs, and discuss a recent result (joint with Dima Arinkin) about the homology of the total complex associated to the bicomplex obtained from these maps. Then I shall speculate (wildly) about applications to mirror symmetry.

### Eyal Markman

Let S be a K3 surface, v an indivisible Mukai vector, and M(v) the moduli space of stable sheaves on S with Mukai vector v. The universal sheaf gives rise to an integral functor F from the derived category of coherent sheaves on S to that on M(v). We show that the functor F is faithful (but not full). The bounded derived category of M(v) is rather mysterious at the moment. As a first step, we provide a simple conjectural description of its full subcategory whose of objects are images of objects on S via the functor F. We verify that description whenever M(v) is the Hilbert scheme of points on S. This work is joint with Sukhendu Mehrotra.

### Lars W Christensen

Tate (co)homology was originally defined for modules over group algebras. The cohomological theory has a very satisfactory generalization---Tate--Vogel cohomology or stable cohomology---to the setting of associative rings. The properties of the corresponding generalization of the homological theory are, perhaps, less straightforward and have, in any event, been poorly understood. I will report on recent progress in this direction. The talk is based on joint work with Olgur Celikbas, Li Liang, and Grep Piepmeyer.

### Anatoly Libgober

I will discuss elliptic genus of singular varieties and its extension to Witten's phases of N=2 theories. In particular McKay correspondence for elliptic genus will be described. As one of applications I will show how to derive relations between elliptic genera of Calabi Yau manifolds and related Witten phases using equivariant McKay correspondence for elliptic genus.

### Vlad Matei

In 2012, J.P Keating and Z. Rudnick published a paper where they resolved a function field version of the Montgomery-Goldston pair correlation conjecture. Their proof relies on a recent equidistribution result of N. Katz. In joint work with Daniel Hast, we reprove their result by counting points on a certain variety using a twisted Grothendieck-Lefschetz formula and obtain also information about higher moments. Moreover our method allows us to also give a proof of the autocorrelation of the Mobius function on average in the function field setting, also known as the Chowla conjecture.

### DJ Bruce

Given a graph one may obtain a reducible algebraic curve by associating a P^1 to each vertex with two P^1’s intersecting if there is an edge between the associated vertices. Such curve are called graph curves, or line arrangements, and were introduced by Bayer and Eisenbud in studying Green’s conjecture. I will discuss how the combinatorics of the graph affect the Betti table of its associated curve. In particular, I will present formulas for the Betti table for all graph curves of genus zero and one. Additionally, I will give formulas for the graded Betti numbers for a class of curves of higher genus. This talk is based on joint work with Pete Vermeire, Evan Nash, Ben Perez, and Pin-Hung Kao.
