# Colloquium: Jake Solomon- Pointwise mirror symmetry

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

**Abstract:**Mirror symmetry is a correspondence between symplectic geometry on a manifold M and complex geometry on a mirror manifold W. The question of why one sort of geometry on M should be reflected in another sort of geometry on the topologically distinct manifold W, and the question of how to find W given M, are a priori highly mysterious. One attempt to explain the mysteries of mirror symmetry is the SYZ conjecture, which asserts that the mirror manifold W can be realized as the moduli space of certain objects of a category associated to M.
