The Calabi homomorphism, Lagrangian paths and special Lagrangians

The talk will have two parts. First, I'll discuss a generalization of the Calabi homomorphism to a functional on Lagrangian paths. Then I'll explain how the functional relates to special Lagrangian geometry, and as time permits, how it fits into the framework of mirror symmetry.
