PDE and Differential Geometry Seminar
A Twist for the Symplectic Algebra of Differential Forms
Li-Sheng Tseng (UC Irvine)

Storrs Campus

On symplectic manifolds, there is a novel A-infinity algebra of differential forms constructed by Tsai-Tseng-Yau. We will review this and introduce a twist to this algebra, motivated by consideration of fiber bundles over symplectic manifolds and sections on them. Interestingly, the twist leads to a natural flatness condition for such bundles. The flatness condition is in general a non-linear PDE system dependent on the symplectic structure, and we will describe a few well-known solutions of this system. This talk is based on a joint work with Jiawei Zhou.
