Calabi-Yau Manifolds & Mirror Symmetry Seminar


Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Time: 2:30 p.m Place: Jeffery Hall 319

Speaker: Oswaldo Sevilla (Fields Institute and Centro de Investigacion en Matematicas A.C.)

Title: Calabi Yau Threefolds arising from certain root lattices.

Abstract: I'll show my work on the construction of Calabi Yau threefolds that are constructed from the C_3 and C_4 root systems, using a construction by H. Verrill (Root lattices and pencils o f varieties, 1996) based on a paper of V. Batyrev (Dual Polyhedra and mirror symmetry for Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces in toric varieties,1994).
