Abstract: It is shown by Kashiwara and Schapira (1980s) that for every constructible sheaf on a smooth manifold, one can construct a closed conic Lagrangian subset of its cotangent bundle, called the microsupport of the sheaf. This eventually led to the equivalence of the category of constructible sheaves on a manifold and the Fukaya category of its cotangent bundle by the work of Nadler and Zaslow (2006), and Ganatra, Pardon, and Shende (2018) for partially wrapped Fukaya categories.

One can try to generalise this and conjecture that Fukaya category of a Weinstein manifold can be given by constructible (microlocal) sheaves associated with its skeleton. In this talk, I will briefly explain these concepts and confirm the conjecture for a family of Weinstein manifolds which are certain quotients of A_n-Milnor fibres. I will outline the computation of their wrapped Fukaya categories and microlocal sheaves on their skeleta, called pinwheels.
