      On attractor points on the moduli space of Calabi-Yau threefolds

      AbstractWe briefly review the origin in physics of attractor points on the moduli space of Calabi-Yau threefolds. We turn to their mathematical interpretation as special cases of Hodge loci. This leads to fascinating conjectures on the modularity of the Calabi-Yau threefolds at these points in terms of their periods and L-functions. For hypergeometric one-parameter families of Calabi-Yau threef...

      Stability of Einstein metrics

      AbstractEinstein metrics can be characterised as critical points of the (normalised) total scalar curvature functional. They are always saddle points. However, there are Einstein metrics which are local maxima of the functional restricted to metrics of fixed volume and constant scalar curvature. These are by definition stable Einstein metrics. Stability can equivalently be characterised by a sp...
