Description
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together specialists to work on understanding the many-faceted mathematical structures underlying problems in enumerative geometry. Topics represented at the workshop will include: geometric representation theory, supersymmetric gauge theory, string theory, knot theory, and derived geometry, all of which have had a profound effect on the development of modern enumerative geometry.   Group Photo
