TITLE: Classical and quantum integrable systems in enumerative geometry
ABSTRACT: For more than a quarter of a century, thanks to the ideas and questions originating in modern high energy physics, there has been a very fruitful interplay between enumerative geometry and integrable system, both classical and quantum. While it impossible to summarize even the most important aspects of this interplay in one talk, I will try to highlight a few logical points with the goal to explain the place and the role of certain more recent developments.
Talk chair: Cumrun Vafa
Written articles will accompany each lecture in this series and be available as part of the publication “History and Literature of Mathematical Science.”
