Irreducible holmorphic symplectic manifolds and sheaves on cubic 4-folds

Abstract:

It is well known that the variety of lines on a cubic 4-fold X is an irreducible holomorphic symplectic (IHS) manifold. More recently Lehn et. al. have constructed another IHS manifold Z which is related to the variety of twisted cubics on X. We will discuss how to describe an open subset of this manifold in terms of moduli spaces of sheaves on X. We will see that the existence of symplectic form on Z is related to the structure of the derived category of X. The talk will be based on a joint work with E. Shinder.
