Period integrals and mutation
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Mathematics.
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Let f  be a Laurent polynomial in two variables, whose Newton polygon strictly contains the origin and whose vertices are primitive lattice points, and let L f   be the minimal-order differential operator that annihilates the period integral of f . We prove several results about f  and L f   in terms of the Newton polygon of f  and the combinatorial operation of *mutation*, in particular we give an in principle complete description of the monodromy of L f   around the origin. Special attention is given to the class of *maximally mutable* Laurent polynomials, which has applications to the conjectured classification of Fano manifolds via mirror symmetry.

Abstract [en]

This thesis consists of three papers, each touching on a different aspect of the theory of rings of differential operators and D-modules. In particular, an aim is to provide and make explicit good examples of D-module directimages, which are all but absent in the existing literature.The first paper makes explicit the fact that B-splines (a particular class of piecewise polynomial functions) are solutions to D-module theoretic direct images of a class of D-modules constructed from polytopes.These modules, and their direct images, inherit all the relevant combinatorial structure from the defining polytopes, and as such are extremely well-behaved.The second paper studies the ring of differential operator on a reduced monomial ring (aka. Stanley-Reisner ring), in arbitrary characteristic.The two-sided ideal structure of the ring of differential operators is described in terms of the associated abstract simplicial complex, and several quite different proofs are given.The third paper computes the monodromy of the period integrals of Laurent polynomials about the singular point at the origin. The monodromy is describable in terms of the Newton polytope of the Laurent polynomial, in particular the combinatorial-algebraic operation of mutation plays an important role. Special attention is given to the class of maximally mutable Laurent polynomials, as these are one side of the conjectured correspondance that classifies Fano manifolds via mirror symmetry.
