CMSA Geometry and Physics seminar: Loops in hypertoric varieties and symplectic duality

Hypertoric varieties are algebraic symplectic varieties associated to graphs, or more generally certain hyperplane arrangements. They make many appearances in modern geometric representation theory. I will discuss certain infinite dimensional or infinite type generalizations of hypertoric varieties which occur in the study of enumerative invariants, focusing on some elementary examples. Joint work with Artan Sheshmani and Shing-Tung Yau.
