By Martin A. Guest

Quantum cohomology has its origins in symplectic geometry and algebraic geometry, yet is deeply with regards to differential equations and integrable platforms. this article explains what's at the back of the extreme good fortune of quantum cohomology, resulting in its connections with many latest components of arithmetic in addition to its visual appeal in new components resembling reflect symmetry. yes varieties 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 publication, and quantum cohomology and different integrable PDEs equivalent 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 vast context, and theoretical physicists who're attracted to the mathematical atmosphere, the textual content assumes uncomplicated familiarity with differential equations and cohomology.

Homological geometry begins with the manifold T ∗ B, the cotangent bundle of the complex algebraic torus B. As B is a group, we have canonical isomorphisms TB ∼ = B × H 2 (M; C), T ∗B ∼ = B × H 2 (M; C)∗ .

With respect to a fixed reference flag E1 ⊆ E2 ⊆ C3 there are six Schubert varieties. To compute the intersection of two Schubert homology classes 2 Those who are prone to exaggeration can say that Euclid knew the quantum cohomology of projective space. 3 Examples of the quantum cohomology algebra (hence the products of the Poincaré dual cohomology classes) one chooses two reference flags so that the set-theoretic intersection of the two Schubert varieties is either empty or another Schubert variety.
