Gromov-Witten Invariants in Derived AG

  • My main question: does introducing derived stacks somehow make some computation easier? #todo/questions

    • I haven’t found any explicit computations of these, but sources alluded to actual counts (numbers) conjecturally coming from physics, where a few have been verified.
  • Integrating over a fundamental class :



  • moduli space of stable maps



  • Operads :



  • Donaldson-Thomas invariants are supposed to relate to Gromov-Witten invariants :


  • Niceness of spaces:


Derived Stacks

  • We can’t prove the Tate conjecture? I guess this is an arithmetic analog of the Hodge conjecture. Serre’s book calls some isomorphism the Tate conjecture and says it’s proved though.

  • Pithy explanation of a derived scheme : a space which can be covered by Zariski opens \(Y\cong \operatorname{Spec}A^*\) where \(A\in { \mathsf{c}{\mathsf{dg{\mathsf{Alg}}} }}_{k}\).

    • schemes and stacks can be very singular.

    • Derived schemes and derived stacks act a bit like smooth, nonsingular objects.

      • Morphisms behave like they are transverse?
  • Derived modular stacks of quasicoherent sheaves over \(X\) remember the entire deformation theory of sheaves on \(X\).

    • The homology of its “tangent space” at a point \([E]\) is \(\operatorname{Ext} ^*(E, E)\), which only holds in restricted degrees if you only use a non-derived moduli scheme or stack.
