This talk will be an introductory discussion of quantum cohomology and Gromov-Witten invariants with a focus on homogeneous varieties. These ideas have enumerative interpretations and rich combinatorial structure.
No new results will be discussed; the aim instead is an exposition of a beautiful area of mathematics that informs mirror symmetry and has yet-to-be-discovered connections with cluster algebras.
