Abstract: I will discuss joint work with Aaron Lauda and Tony Licata giving a conjectural description of certain algebras \tilde{B}(V), deforming algebras B(V) that conjecturally describe Fukaya categories of hypertoric varieties, in terms of wrapped Fukaya categories of complexified hyperplane complements. I will also discuss our proof of this conjecture when V is a cyclic hyperplane arrangement, which makes use of known results describing the Fukaya category of the complement in this case in terms of algebras first introduced by Ozsvath-Szabo in 2016. If time permits, I will discuss relationships with the m=1 amplituhedron, a recent topic of interest in the physics of scattering amplitudes.
