coefficients, I will outline a theory of a particularly nice class of nonconstant coefficient systems
defined on Riemann surfaces. These are categorical analogues of perverse sheaves, called
perverse schobers. We provide a definition of perverse schobers as categorical sheaves on a
relative two-colored version of the unital Ran space of the surface. We explain how to describe
concerning homological mirror symmetry for hypersurfaces in (C*)^n, namely, comparing the
derived category of the hypersurface and the Fukaya category of the mirror Landau-Ginzburg
model. We will then discuss the extension of these results to (essentially arbitrary) complete
intersections in toric Fano varieties.
symplectic topology. For every closed exact Lagrangian L in the cotangent bundle of a manifold
M, we associate a locally constant sheaf of categories on L, which we call Brane_L, whose fiber is
the infinity-category of k-modules, for k any ring spectrum. I will discuss the relation of Brane_L
with the usual brane structures in Floer theory, and its connection to the J-homomorphism in

Let $k$ be a fixed positive integer. Myerson (and others) asked how small the modulus of a non-zero sum of $k$ roots of unity can be. If the roots of unity have order dividing $N$, then an elementary argument shows that the modulus decreases at most exponentially in $N$ (for fixed $k$). Moreover it is known that the decay is at worst polynomial if $k < 5$. But no general sub-exponential bound is known if $k \geq 5$.
