String-Math Seminar: Quantum K-theory of hypertoric varieties

Seminar | October 2 | 2-3 p.m. | 402 LeConte Hall

Okounkov's quantum K-theory is defined via virtual counting of parameterized quasimaps. In this talk I will consider explicit computations in the case of hypertoric varieties, where the quantum K-theory relation will arise from analysis of the bare vertex function.
