Introduction to J-holomorphic curves and Gromov-Witten Invariants

July 10 - 22, 2017

About School and Workshop
For the last twenty years, the theory of Gromov-Witten invariants and Mirror Symmetry has been an active area of re- search in the interface of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (particularly String Theory). We are therefore organizing an introductory school at NISER in J-holomorphic curves and Gromov-Witten invariants with connections to Mirror Symmetry. Young mathematicians (PhD stduents and postdocs) who are interested in Differential Topology, Differential Geometry, Complex Algebraic Geometry and Symplectic Geometry are particularly encouraged to apply.
