1. Mak, Cheuk Yu. Rigidity of symplectic fillings, symplectic divisors and Dehn twist exact sequences.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2016, University of Minnesota

We present three different aspects of symplectic geometry in connection to complex geometry. Convex symplectic manifolds, symplectic divisors and Lagrangians are central objects to study on the symplectic side. The focus of the thesis is to establish relations of these symplectic objects to the corresponding complex analytic objects, namely Stein fillings, divisors and coherent sheaves, respectively. Using pseudoholomorphic curve techniques and Gauge theoretic results, we system- atically study obstructions to symplectic/Stein fillings of contact 3-manifolds arising from the rigidity of closed symplectic four-manifolds with non-positive Kodaira dimen- sion. This perspective provides surprising consequences which, in particular, captures a new rigidity phenomenon for exact fillings of unit cotangent bundle of orientable surfaces and recovers many known results in a uniform way. The most important source of Stein fillings comes from smoothing of a complex isolated singularities. This motivates us to study when a symplectic divisor admits a convex/concave neighborhood and we obtain a complete and very computable answer to this local behaviour of symplectic divisors. Globally speaking, symplectic divisors in a closed symplectic manifold that represent its first Chern class are of particular importance in mirror symmetry. Such a symplectic divisor, together with the closed symplectic manifold together is called a symplectic log Calabi-Yau surface. We obtain a complete classification of symplectic log Calabi-Yau surface up to isotopy of symplectic divisors. Finally, we study algebraic properties of Fukaya category on the functor level and uti- lize Biran-Cornea’s Lagrangian cobordism theory and Mau-Wehrheim-Woodward func- tor to provide a partial proof of Huybrechts-Thomas’s conjecture.

2. Mandel, Travis Glenn. Tropical theta functions and log Calabi-Yau surfaces.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2014, University of Texas – Austin

We describe combinatorial techniques for studying log Calabi-Yau surfaces. These can be viewed as generalizing the techniques for studying toric varieties in terms of their character and cocharacter lattices. These lattices are replaced by certain integral linear manifolds described in [GHK11], and monomials on toric varieties are replaced with the canonical theta functions defined in [GHK11] using ideas from mirror symmetry. We classify deformation classes of log Calabi-Yau surfaces in terms of the geometry of these integral linear manifolds. We then describe the tropicalizations of theta functions and use them to generalize the dual pairing between the character and cocharacter lattices. We use this to describe generalizations of dual cones, Newton and polar polytopes, Minkowski sums, and finite Fourier series expansions. We hope that these techniques will generalize to higher rank cluster varieties. Advisors/Committee Members: Keel, Seán (advisor).

3. -4617-5386. GHK mirror symmetry, the Knutson-Tao hive cone, and Littlewood-Richardson coefficients.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2017, University of Texas – Austin

I prove that the full Fock-Goncharov conjecture holds for Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A) – the configuration space of triples of decorated flags in generic position. As a key ingredient of this proof, I exhibit a maximal green sequence for the quiver of the initial seed. I compute the Landau-Ginzburg potential W on Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A)[superscript vee] associated to the partial minimal model Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A) [subset] Conf₃ ([mathcal] A). The integral points of the associated "cone" [Xi] [does not equal] {W[superscript T] [less than or equal to] 0] [subset] Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A)[superscript vee] ([mathbb R][superscript T]) parametrize a basis for [mathcal O] (Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A) )= [big o plus] (V[subscript alpha] [o times] V[supscript beta] [o times] V[subscript gamma])[subscript G] and encode the Littlewood-Richardson coefficients c[superscript gamma][subscript alpha beta]. I exhibit a unimodular p[superscript *] map that identifies W with the potential of Goncharov-Shen on Conf₃[superscript x] ([mathcal] A) and Xi with the Knutson-Tao hive cone.
