Equivariant Seidel maps and a flat connection on equivariant symplectic cohomology

26 April 2021
Todd Liebenschutz-Jones

I'll be presenting my PhD work, in which I define two new algebraic structures on the equivariant symplectic cohomology of a convex symplectic manifold. The first is a collection of shift operators which generalise the shift operators on equivariant quantum cohomology in algebraic geometry. That is, given a Hamiltonian action of the torus T, we assign to a cocharacter of T an endomorphism of (S1 × T)-equivariant Floer cohomology based on the equivariant Floer Seidel map. The second is a connection which is a multivariate version of Seidel’s q-connection on S1 -equivariant Floer cohomology and generalises the Dubrovin connection on equivariant quantum cohomology.
