Homological Mirror Symmetry (HMS) was initiated by Maxim Kontsevich. It benefits from a close relationship with string theory, and has developed into a powerful and versatile idea. During the program, we will consider the core conjectures of HMS, and its role as a framework within which wider questions from mirror symmetry and other parts of mathematics can be studied. This is still a developing subject, and the program is open to a variety of approaches and viewpoints.
Professor Dmitry Orlov (Steklov) has been appointed as a Clay Senior Scholar from September 2016 to April 2017 to participate in this program.
