**Course Description.**

The main theme of this class is "Gromov--Witten Theory".
My plan is to begin at the introductory level,
assuming only basic knowledge of algebraic geometry,
and spend a few weeks building necessary machinery for the subject.
The goal is to go through some selected research areas in the field.

- Moduli of curves and maps.
- Mumford's calculation.
- Equivariant cohomology/intersection theory. (Virtual) localization.
- Relative Gromov--Witten theory.
- Orbifold Gromov--Witten theory.
- Givental's axiomatic approach.

- Future announcements here.
