Course/Module description:
We will discuss stability conditions on triangulated categories following the work of Douglas and Bridgeland. Concrete examples of stability conditions will be given from symplectic and algebraic geometry, which will also illustrate mirror symmetry. An effort will be made to give a gentle introduction to the relevant background material from category theory, symplectic geometry and algebraic geometry. We will also discuss the motivation for the study of stability conditions, especially the existence problem for special Lagrangian submanifolds, moduli spaces of stable objects, and monodromy actions.
