The behaviour of Kahler-Einstein polygons under combinatorial mutation
[ Abstract ]
Combinatorial mutations play an important role in the mirror symmetry approach to the classification of Fano varieties. Another important notion for Fano varieties is that of K-polystability, which turns out to have a nice combinatorial characterisation in the toric case. In this talk, I will give an overview of how mutations work and sketch the key ideas used to explore its interaction with Kahler-Einstein polygons (i.e. the Fano polygons whose associated toric variety is K-polystable).
