Topology Seminar (Main Talk): Gromov-Witten Axioms for Symplectic Manifolds via Polyfold Theory

Seminar | April 25 | 4-5 p.m. | 3 Evans Hall

 Wolfgang Schmaltz, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In 1994 Kontsevich and Manin stated the Gromov-Witten axioms, given as a list of formal relations between the Gromov-Witten invariants. In this talk I prove several of the Gromov-Witten axioms for curves of arbitrary genus for all closed symplectic manifolds.
