Fukaya Categories and Picard-Lefschetz Theory

The principal items within the booklet are Lagrangian submanifolds and their invariants, reminiscent of Floer homology and its multiplicative buildings, which jointly represent the Fukaya class. The proper elements of pseudo-holomorphic curve concept are lined in a few aspect, and there's additionally a self-contained account of the required homological algebra.

2. Let y\ < ■ ■ ■ < yn-k and Zk > ■ ■ ■ > z\ be sequences of integers that are complementary in { 1 , . . , n } . Assume that k is even. Then in W we have k l([yi,y2,--- ,yn-k,Zk,zk-i,--- ,zi\) = ^T(n-ZJ). The barred permutations of this type form the poset, denoted W*, of the minimal length left coset representatives of Sn in W. Our terminology and all unexplained notation concerning partitions will follow [Ma]. We set p(k) := (k,k — l,... , 1), a "triangular partition" of length k. DIVIDED DIFFERENCES OF TYPE D 35 Given a strict partition a = (oti > • • • > ati > 0) C p(n — 1), we set a+ := (on + 1, a2 + 1, • • • , « ; + 1) if Z is even, and a+ := (ai + l , a 2 + 1,.

We need one more definition (cf. 3. Since the functions E^,Ek(m) are constant on GV-orbits, we can con­ sider them as functions on Ay/Gv- The equalities in the following conjec­ ture are understood in this sense. Conjecture. 1) Up to a sign, £ £ | A J , = Ea, dimV = a £ R+. 2) Up to a sign, 2%(l)|A(, = Ek{\), dim V = S. 3) Let d i m F = m5, m > 1. We conjecture that if x',x" £ Assd are two elements in the same S-equivalence class and Ek(m)(x') ^ 0, E*k{m){x") ^ 0, then E*k(m)(x') = E*k(m){x"). »d as a function on Assd/S-equivalence by setting for an S-equivalence class X: fr*{ \(v\ _ J Ek(m)(x)> 10, */ there exists x £ X with Ek(m){x) otherwise.

Using the braid relations in W one easily shows that if ro £ R(w\), then, after breaking a ribbon in D, we get D' such that rr,/ g R(w\). In the case of the push down operation, it is clear that we get D' with ro — ru1 ■ Note that any configuration of boxes D C Da such that m e R(w\) can be o o obtained from D\ C Du by a sequence of operations of the above described two types. 9.
