Moduli spaces of stable maps and GW theory, II

Introductory Workshop: Enumerative Geometry Beyond Numbers January 22, 2018 - January 26, 2018

January 23, 2018 (09:00 AM PST - 10:30 AM PST)
Speaker(s): Rahul Pandharipande (ETH Zurich)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium

Gromov-Witten invariants involve the enumerative geometry of curves in varieties. I will introduce the moduli spaces of stable maps, virtual classes, and the CohFT axioms. The basic techniques of computation (localization, degeneration, and classification) will be discussed in several examples. Open questions about Gromov-Witten generating functions and Gromov-Witten cycle classes will be presented.
