Grant Agreement No.: 11.G34.31.0023

Host institution of higher learning:
State educational budget institution of higher professional education "State University – Higher School of Economics"

Scientific research area:
Mathematics

Project goal:
To achieve new results in algebraic geometry, complex geometry, and differential geometry.

Key project objectives:
1. To prove the existence of rational curves and rational pints on K3-type surfaces;
2. To prove the global Torelli theorem and apply the proof to study geometry and topology of hyper-clear varieties;
3. To study motive structures in non-commutative geometry;
4. To study particular cases in homological mirror symmetry;
5. To research motive application of cyclical cosmologies within the context of non-commutative Tate hypothesis.

Anticipated project outputs:
The anticipated project outputs will find applications in theoretical physics, differential geometry, theory of numbers and problems of classification of complex varieties.
