Week 2 Schedule

Mirror symmetry connects A-model quantum geometry with more classical B-model geometry. For twenty years, the B-model has provided a powerful tool for such tasks as calculating genus zero Gromov-Witten invariants. During the last few years, there have been a great deal of new advances on B-model aspects of Gromov-Witten theory including a higher genus B-model theory, the Landau-Ginzburg/Calabi-Yau correspondence, and connections with quasi-modular forms. This workshop intends to bring experts together from both mathematics and physics for these new interactions.

This workshop is the part of special semester on B-model aspect of Gromov-Witten theory at Michigan. It is partially supported by NSF FRG 1159964 grant and NSF RTG grant 1045119.
