Quantum cohomology has its origins in symplectic geometry and algebraic geometry, yet is deeply with regards to differential equations and integrable structures. this article explains what's in the back of the intense luck of quantum cohomology, resulting in its connections with many current parts of arithmetic in addition to its visual appeal in new components reminiscent of reflect symmetry. sure types of differential equations (or D-modules) give you the key hyperlinks among quantum cohomology and conventional arithmetic; those hyperlinks are the main target of the booklet, and quantum cohomology and different integrable PDEs similar to the KdV equation and the harmonic map equation are mentioned inside of this unified framework. geared toward graduate scholars in arithmetic who are looking to know about quantum cohomology in a extensive context, and theoretical physicists who're drawn to the mathematical atmosphere, the textual content assumes uncomplicated familiarity with differential equations and cohomology.

As B is a group, we have canonical isomorphisms TB ∼ = B × H 2 (M; C), T ∗B ∼ = B × H 2 (M; C)∗ . Via this identification, the natural (complex) symplectic form of T ∗ B is dλ, where r λ= i=1 dqi ∧ pi . qi With respect to this symplectic structure, the Poisson bracket of two functions f , g : T ∗ B → C is given by r {f , g} = qi i=1 ∂f ∂g ∂g ∂f − ∂pi ∂qi ∂pi ∂qi . Let us consider next the algebraic variety VM defined by VM = {(q1 , . . , qr , p1 , . . , pr ) ∈ T ∗ B | R1 = · · · = Ru = 0}. It is shown in [55] and [7] that, under certain conditions, VM is a Lagrangian subvariety of T ∗ B.

We conclude that α, X1 = 1 and α, X4 = 0, which forces α = x2 . Next, we have β = X1 |X1 |Z 0,1 , where Z is the generator of H0 ( 1 ; Z). Let us choose X1 , X3 , and any point of 1 as representatives of the three homology classes. e. each fibre) fails to intersect all three representatives. Hence β = 0. Finally, γ = X1 |X1 |Z 2,0 and this is zero because a holomorphic map of degree (2,0) must be a map CP1 → X2 of degree two. 10 x1 ◦ x4 = x1 x4 . Proof Let us write x1 ◦ x4 = x1 x4 + αq1 + βq2 + γ q21 .

6 Let F3 = F1,2 (C3 ) = {(L, V) ∈ Gr1 (C3 ) × Gr2 (C3 ) | L ⊆ V} ∼ = U3 /U1 × U1 × U1 be the (full) flag manifold of the unitary group U3 . The ‘Borel description’ of H ∗ (F3 ; Z) is H ∗ (F3 ; Z) ∼ = Z[x1 , x2 , x3 ]/(σ1 , σ2 , σ3 ) where σ1 , σ2 , σ3 are the elementary symmetric functions of x1 , x2 , x3 . Geometrically, xi = −c1 (Li ), where L1 , L2 , L3 are the complex line bundles on F3 whose fibres over (L, V) are L, L⊥ ∩ V, V ⊥ respectively. On the other hand, the ‘Schubert description’ of H∗ (F3 ; Z) involves specific cycles, the Schubert varieties, which generalize the subvarieties CPi of CPn .
