Description
This workshop will consist of expository mini-courses and lectures introducing various aspects of modern enumerative geometry, among which: enumeration via intersection theory on moduli spaces of curves or sheaves, including Gromov-Witten and Donaldson-Thomas invariants; motivic and K-theoretic refinement of these invariants; and categorical invariants (derived categories of coherent sheaves, Fukaya categories).
