## 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.

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.
