DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Thomas Grimm (Utrecht)\nInsights from Hodge theory h
as long played an important role in the study of string compactifications
and the search for string vacua. After a brief introduction to variations
of Hodge structures\, I will explain that the arising equations can also b
e obtained from a lambda-deformed\, gauged WZW model. I will then describe
how asymptotic Hodge theory allows to select special solutions to this mo
del that solve intricate recursion relations and match sl(2) boundary cond
itions. The remarkable properties of these solutions are underlying the pr
oof of a novel finiteness theorem for the number of self-dual flux vacua.\
