Geometric recursion

Date: Thursday, December 7, 2017 13:00 - 15:00
Speaker: Gaetan Borot (MPI, Bonn)
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 2, Central Building
Series: Mathematics and CS Seminar
Host: Tamas Hausel

I will describe a new formalism developed together with Andersen and Orantin, called geometric recursion. Out of a small amount of initial data, and a functor E from a category of surfaces to a category of topological vector spaces, it constructs functorial assignments S -> \Omega_ S in E(S) by induction on the Euler characteristic of S. Examples of E include functions over the Teichmuller space, the topological recursion of Eynard and Orantin appears in this case as a projection of the geometric recursion, and a prototype of the geometric recursion formula are the Mirzakhani-McShane identities.
