## Algorithms for the topology of arithmetic groups and Hecke actions II

At the November workshop, I described a new algorithm to cover compact, congruence locally symmetric spaces by balls. I’ll discuss how to compute the nerve of such a covering and Hecke actions on its cohomology.

## Mirror spaces from formal deformation of Lagrangians and their gluing.

For given a Lagrangian in a symplectic manifold, one can consider deformation of A-infinity algebra structures on its Floer complex by degree 1 elements satisfying the Maurer-Cartan equation. The space of such degree 1 elements can be thought of as giving a local chart of the mirror. In this talk, I will explain how to glue local charts from different Lagrangians using isomorphisms between Lagrangians in the Fukaya category.

As an application, we will discuss the mirror construction for Gr(2,4) that recovers its Lie-theoretical mirror.

## A simple proof of a reverse Minkowski inequality

We consider the following question: how many points with bounded norm can a "non-degenerate" lattice have. Here, by a "non-degenerate" lattice, we mean an n-dimensional lattice with no surprisingly dense lower-dimensional sublattices.
