Quadratic differentials as stability conditions

Presented by:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I will explain how certain moduli spaces of meromorphic quadratic differentials arising in Teichmuller theory are related to spaces of stability conditions on the Fukaya categories of some particular quasi-projective Calabi-Yau 3-folds. These Fukaya categories can be described via Ginzburg algebras associated to quivers defined by triangulations of a Riemann surface; suitable triangulations are obtained from the foliations defined by generic quadratic differentials. This is joint work with Tom Bridgeland.
