Topological string theory on compact CalabiYau: Modularity and boundary conditions
, 2006
"... The topological string partition function Z(λ,t, ¯t) = exp(λ 2g−2 Fg(t, ¯t)) is calculated on a compact CalabiYau M. The Fg(t, ¯t) fulfill the holomorphic anomaly equations, which imply that Ψ = Z transforms as a wave function on the symplectic space H 3 (M, Z). This defines it everywhere in the m ..."

The topological string partition function Z(λ,t, ¯t) = exp(λ 2g−2 Fg(t, ¯t)) is calculated on a compact CalabiYau M. The Fg(t, ¯t) fulfill the holomorphic anomaly equations, which imply that Ψ = Z transforms as a wave function on the symplectic space H 3 (M, Z). This defines it everywhere in the moduli space M(M) along with preferred local coordinates. Modular properties of the sections Fg as well as local constraints from the 4d effective action allow us to fix Z to a large extent. Currently with a newly found gap condition at the conifold, regularity at the orbifold and the most naive bounds from Castelnuovo’s theory, we can provide the boundary data, which specify Z, e.g. up to genus 51 for the quintic.

A twodimensional topological sigmamodel on a generalized CalabiYau target space X is defined. The model is constructed in BatalinVilkovisky formalism using only a generalized complex structure J and a pure spinor ρ on X. In the present construction the algebra of Qtransformations automatically closes offshell, the model transparently depends only on J, the algebra of observables and correlation functions for topologically trivial maps in genus zero are easily defined. The extended moduli space appears naturally. The familiar action of the twisted N = 2 CFT can be recovered after a gauge fixing. In the open case, we consider an example of generalized deformation of complex structure by a holomorphic Poisson bivector β and recover holomorphic noncommutative Kontsevich ∗product. 1
Integral transforms and Drinfeld centers in derived algebraic geometry

Compact objects are as necessary to this subject as air to breathe. R.W. Thomason to A. Neeman, [N3] Abstract. We study natural algebraic operations on categories arising in algebraic geometry and its homotopytheoretic generalization, derived algebraic geometry. We work with a broad class of derived stacks which we call stacks with air. The class of stacks with air includes in particular all quasicompact, separated derived schemes and (in characteristic zero) all quotients of quasiprojective or smooth derived schemes by affine algebraic groups, and is closed under derived fiber products. We show that the (enriched) derived categories of quasicoherent sheaves on stacks with air behave well under algebraic and geometric operations. Namely, we identify the derived category of a fiber product with the tensor product of the derived categories of the factors. We also identify functors between derived categories of sheaves with integral transforms (providing a generalization of a theorem of Toën [To1] for ordinary schemes over a ring). As a first application, for a stack Y with air, we calculate the Drinfeld center (or synonymously,

Abstract. Stability conditions are a mathematical way to understand Πstability for Dbranes in string theory. Spaces of stability conditions seem to be related to moduli spaces of conformal field theories. This is a survey article describing what is currently known about spaces of stability conditions, and giving some pointers for future research. 1.
Moduli space actions on the Hochschild CoChains of a Frobenius algebra I: Cell Operads

This is the second of two papers in which we prove that a cell model of the moduli space of curves with marked points and tangent vectors at the marked points acts on the Hochschild co–chains of a Frobenius algebra. We also prove that a there is dg–PROP action of a version of Sullivan Chor ..."

Abstract. This is the second of two papers in which we prove that a cell model of the moduli space of curves with marked points and tangent vectors at the marked points acts on the Hochschild co–chains of a Frobenius algebra. We also prove that a there is dg–PROP action of a version of Sullivan Chord diagrams which acts on the normalized Hochschild cochains of a Frobenius algebra. These actions lift to operadic correlation functions on the co–cycles. In particular, the PROP action gives an action on the homology of a loop space of a compact simply–connected manifold. In this second part, we discretize the operadic and PROPic structures of the first part. We also introduce the notion of operadic correlation functions and use them in conjunction with operadic maps from the cell

In [1] Chas and Sullivan have defined an intersectiontype product on the homology of the free loop space LM of an oriented manifold M. In this paper we show how to extend this construction to a topological conformal field theory of degree d. In particular, we get operations on H∗LM which are parameterized by the homology of the moduli space of openclosed Riemann surfaces. 1

This expository paper describes sewing conditions in twodimensional open/closed topological field theory. We include a description of the Gequivariant case, where G is a finite group. We determine the category of boundary conditions in the case that the closed string algebra is semisimple. In this case we find that sewing constraints – the most primitive form of worldsheet locality – already imply that Dbranes are (Gtwisted) vector bundles on spacetime. We comment on extensions to cochainvalued theories and various applications. Finally, we give uniform proofs of all relevant sewing theorems using Morse theory. August
