Title: Seidel's Mirror Map for Abelian Varieties
Speaker: Professor Eric Zaslow
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We find the abelian varieties mirror to symplectic tori, using Paul Seidel's idea of constructing the mirror of a projective variety using Kontsevich's equivalence of categories. We show how the construction depends on the symplectomorphism representing the monodromy around the large complex structure point. The example of the two-torus is discussed in detail.
