OASW02 - Subfactors, higher geometry, higher twists and almost Calabi-Yau algebras

We study various geometrical quantities for Calabi-Yau varieties realized as cones over Gorenstein Fano varieties in various dimensions, obtained as toric varieties from reflexive polytopes.
One chief inspiration comes from the equivalence of a-maximization and volume-minimization in for Calabi-Yau threefolds, coming from AdS5/CFT4 correspondence in physics.
We arrive at explicit combinatorial formulae for many topological quantities and conjecture new bounds to the Sasaki-Einstein volume function with respect to these quantities. 
Based on joint work with Rak-Kyeong Seong and Shiing-Tung Yau.
