Deformation of singular Lagrangian subvarieties. (English) Zbl 1051.14006
The authors develop some ideas of a deformation theory of singular lagrangian subvarieties. Lagrangian submanifolds with singularities have been studied by various authors: Arnold, Givental and others [A. B. Givental’, J. Sov. Math. 52, No. 4, 3246–3278 (1990); translation from Itogi Nauki Tekh., Ser. Sovrem. Probl. Mat., Novejshie Dostizh. 33, 55–112 (1988; Zbl 0900.58013)].
The authors study the behaviour of Lagrangian singularities under deformations by describing the spaces of infinitesimal deformations and obstructions of a Lagrangian subvariety. They focus their attention mainly in the sheaf of Lagrangian deformations of \( L\).
In section 1, a complex \(({\mathcal C}^*, \delta)\) is defined in terms of \(L\) and it is shown in proposition 1 that \(({\mathcal C}, \delta, \wedge) \) is a differential graded algebra. In proposition 2, the authors establish an isomorphism of \({\mathcal C}_L\) and \(\Omega_L \) on the regular locus, which can be extended to an isomorphism of \( {\Omega_L^p}^{**}\) with \({\mathcal C}_L^p\). In section 3, theorem 1 they calculate the zeroth and first cohomology groups of the complex \({\mathcal C}_L^{*}\). In theorem 2 of the same section, the authors define an obstruction theory of \(L\) in terms of the second cohomology group of the complex \({\mathcal C}_L^{\bullet}\). In section 4 they prove in theorem 3 that for Lagrangian spaces \(L\) satisfying “Condition P” given in definition 2, the cohomology of \({\mathcal C}_L^{\bullet}\) is finite dimensional. In section 5, the authors compute the sheaf of Lagrangian deformations of \(L\) very explicitly for three families of examples: a determinantal variety called the swallowtail, for a special example of a conormal space associated to a plane curve and for special examples of completely integrable Hamiltonian systems.
