Daniele Celoria (University of Melbourne) — The 3D index and Dehn surgery
After a general introduction to Dimofte-Gaiotto-Gukov's 3D index for cusped hyperbolic 3-manifolds, we'll dive into some of its relations with basic hypergeometric series. Then we'll describe an ongoing effort to prove how the 3D index changes under Dehn surgery. This is work in progress with Profs C. Hodgson and H. Rubinstein.
