This reading group meets on Tuesday evenings in Math 622 at 430pm, unless noted otherwise. We will spend the first few weeks reading Nick Sheridan's recent survey Versality in Mirror Symmetry. Anyone interested is welcome to come, although we will assume basic familiarity with Floer theory. Questions can be directed to Kyler Siegel at kyler@math.columbia.edu. Please also message if you are not yet on the mailing list and would like to join.
