01/06/2020 and 01/07/2020: Constructing shifted symplectic structures

January 6, 2020 and January 7, 2020
TITLE: Constructing shifted symplectic structures

ABSTRACT: I will explain an important extension of Hamiltonian and Quasi-Hamiltonian reduction which uses derived geometry in an essential way. This extension has a lot of built in flexibility and provides a universal construction of many known and new symplectic structures in algebraic geometry. The generalized reduction construction relies on the notion of a relative shifted symplectic structure along the stalks of a constructible sheaf of derived stacks on a stratified space. I will introduce relative shifted symplectic forms and will describe a general pushforward construction, together with explicit techniques for computing such forms. As applications I will discuss a relative lift of recent results of Shende-Takeda on moduli of objects in topological Fukaya categories, and a universal construction of symplectic structures on derived moduli of Stokes data on smooth varieties. This is a joint work with Dima Arinkin and Bertrand Toën.
