Unfoldings of Meromorphic Connections and a Construction of Frobenius Manifolds

  title={Unfoldings of Meromorphic Connections and a Construction of Frobenius Manifolds},
  author={Yuri I. Manin},
The existence of universal unfoldings of certain germs of meromorphic connections is established. This is used to prove a general construction theorem for Frobenius manifolds. A particular case is Dubrovin’s theorem on semisimple Frobenius manifolds. Another special case starts with variations of Hodge structures. This case is used to compare two constructions of Frobenius manifolds, the one in singularity theory and the Barannikov–Kontsevich construction. For homogeneous polynomials which give… CONTINUE READING
