We calculate the small quantum orbifold cohomology of arbitrary weighted projective spaces. We generalize Givental’s heuristic argument, which relates small quantum cohomology to S 1equivariant Floer cohomology of loop space, to weighted projective spaces and use this to conjecture an explicit formula for the small Jfunction, a generating function for certain genuszero Gromov–Witten invariants. We prove this conjecture using a method due to Bertram. This provides the first nontrivial example of a family of orbifolds of arbitrary dimension for which the small quantum orbifold cohomology is known. In addition we obtain formulas for the small Jfunctions of weighted projective complete intersections satisfying a combinatorial condition; this condition
A de Rham model for ChenRuan cohomology ring of abelian orbifolds

"... Abstract. We present a deRham model for ChenRuan cohomology ring of abelian orbifolds. We introduce the notion of twist factors so that formally the stringy cohomology ring can be defined without going through pseudoholomorphic orbifold curves.

Abstract. We present a deRham model for ChenRuan cohomology ring of abelian orbifolds. We introduce the notion of twist factors so that formally the stringy cohomology ring can be defined without going through pseudoholomorphic orbifold curves. Thus our model can be viewed as the classical description of ChenRuan cohomology for abelian orbifolds. The model simplifies computation of ChenRuan cohomology ring. Using our model, we give a version of wall crossing formula. 1.

We introduce an integral structure in orbifold quantum cohomology associated to the Kgroup and the b Γclass. In the case of compact toric orbifolds, we show that this integral structure matches with the natural integral structure for the LandauGinzburg model under mirror symmetry. By assuming the existence of an integral structure, we give a natural explanation for the specialization to a root of unity in Y. Ruan’s crepant resolution conjecture [66].
ORBIFOLD QUANTUM RIEMANNROCH, LEFSCHETZ AND SERRE

Given a vector bundle F on a smooth DeligneMumford stack X and an invertible multiplicative characteristic class c, we define orbifold GromovWitten invariants of X twisted by F and c. We prove a “quantum RiemannRoch theorem” (Theorem 4.2.1) which expresses the generating function of the twisted invariants in terms of the generating function of the untwisted invariants. A quantum Lefschetz hyperplane theorem is derived from this by specializing to genus zero. As an application, we determine the relationship between genus0 orbifold GromovWitten invariants of X and that of a complete intersection, under additional assumptions. This provides a way to verify mirror symmetry predictions for some complete intersection orbifolds.
On the C n /Zm fractional branes

"... We construct several geometric representatives for the C n /Zm fractional branes on either a partially or the completely resolved orbifold. In the process we use large radius and conifoldtype monodromies, and provide a strong consistency check. In particular, for C 3 /Z5 we give three different set ..."

We construct several geometric representatives for the C n /Zm fractional branes on either a partially or the completely resolved orbifold. In the process we use large radius and conifoldtype monodromies, and provide a strong consistency check. In particular, for C 3 /Z5 we give three different sets of geometric representatives. We also find the explicit Seibergduality which connects our fractional branes to the ones given by the McKay correspondence.

Abstract. Twisted Gromov–Witten invariants are intersection numbers in moduli spaces of stable maps to a manifold or orbifold X which depend in addition on a vector bundle over X and an invertible multiplicative characteristic class. Special cases are closely related to local Gromov–Witten invariants of the bundle, and to genuszero onepoint invariants of complete intersections in X. We develop tools for computing genuszero twisted Gromov–Witten invariants of orbifolds and apply them to several examples. We prove a “quantum Lefschetz theorem ” which expresses genuszero onepoint Gromov–Witten invariants of a complete intersection in terms of those of the ambient orbifold X. We determine the genuszero Gromov–Witten potential of the type A surface singularity ˆ C2 ˜ ˆ ˜ /Zn. We also compute some genuszero invariants of C3 /Z3, verifying predictions of Aganagic–Bouchard–Klemm. In a selfcontained Appendix, we determine the relationship between the quantum cohomology of the An surface singularity and that of its crepant resolution, thereby proving the Crepant Resolution Conjectures of Ruan and Bryan–Graber in this case.

ABSTRACT. We introduce the preorbifold cohomology ring PH ∗,⋄ T (Y) of a stably almost complex manifold carrying an action of a torus T. We show that in the case that Y has a locally free action by T, the preorbifold cohomology ring is isomorphic to the orbifold cohomology ring H ∗ orb(Y/T) (as defined in [ChenRuan]) of the quotient orbifold Y/T. For Y a compact Hamiltonian Tspace, we extend to orbifold cohomology two techniques that are standard in ordinary cohomology. We show that PH ∗,⋄ T (Y) has a natural ring surjection onto H ∗ orb(Y//T), where Y//T is the symplectic reduction of Y by T at a regular value of the moment map. We extend to PH ∗,⋄ T (Y) the graphical GKM calculus (as detailed in e.g. [HaradaHenriquesHolm]), and the kernel computations of [TolmanWeitsman, Goldin]. We detail this technology in two examples: toric orbifolds and weight varieties, which are symplectic reductions of flag manifolds. Toric orbifolds were previously calculated over Q in [BorisovChenSmith]); we reproduce their results over Q for all symplectic toric orbifolds obtained by reduction by a connected torus (though with different computational methods), and extend them over Z in certain cases.
