Lagrangian cycles and knots at large N

Presented by: 
E Diaconescu Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
Date: 
Thursday 12th January 2012 - 15:30 to 16:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
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.
