Seminar

Lagrangian cycles and knots at large N

Diaconescu, E (Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey)
Thursday 12 January 2012, 15:30-16:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

Abstract

Lagrangian cycles will be constructed for algebraic knots in the context of large N duality via conifold transitions. It will be explained how this construction yields a physics derivation of a conjecture of Oblomkov and Shende on HOMFLY polynomials and plane curve singularities. This is joint work with V. Shende and C. Vafa.
