Title: Integrating symplectic stacks

Abstract: Shifted symplectic stacks, introduced by Pantev, Toën, Vaquie, and Vezzosi, are a natural generalization of symplectic manifolds in derived algebraic geometry. The word `shifted’ here refers to cohomological shift, which can naturally occur in the derived setting: after all, the tangent space is now not a vector space, but a complex. Several classes of interesting moduli stacks carry shifted simplectic structures.
In my talk (based on a joint project with T.Pantev and B.Toën), I will present a way to generate shifted symplectic stacks. Informally, it involves integration along a (compact oriented) topological manifold X: starting with a family of shifted symplectic stacks over X, we produce a new stack of sections of this family, and equip it with a symplectic structure via an appropriate version of the Poincaré duality.
