A classical theorem due to Birkhoff states that on a real or a complex symplectic manifold a function near its Morse critical point can be transformed by formal symplectomorphism into a power series in the pairwise sums of squares of the local coordinates, called its "Birkhoff normal form". A result of Sjöstrand says that, given certain conditions, one can compute the eigenvalues of the Schrödinger operator using a quantum version of this normal form. In my talk, I will explain how to interpret the quantum Birkhoff normal form geometrically by relating it to the quantization of integrable systems and to formal deformations of the variation of Hodge structures. This is joint work in progress with Maxim Kontsevich.

      Workshop on Integrable Systems

      The workshop on integrable systems is aiming to bring experts in both classical and quantum integrable systems together, to share their most recent work. The goal is to consolidate local expertise, and to bring experts outside of Beijing area. Various interesting topics will be discussed, including Toda systems, open spin chains, Painlevé type equations and applications. The workshop will be he...

      Moduli Space and Related Topics | Degeneration of Hodge structures and cubic hypersurfaces

      Abstract The degeneration of Hodge structures is related to how a smooth projective variety degenerate. And it provides a Hodge-theoretic perspective to compactify moduli spaces. In this talk, I will focus on a particular degeneration of cubic hypersurfaces and study the associated limiting mixed Hodge structure. It generalizes some results in Radu Laza’s and Brendan Hassett’s works on cubic ...
