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.

Possible topics include:

If you are interested in getting some ideas of the subject in advance, you can try the following expository papers and lecture notes: Koch and Vainsencher, Fulton and Pandharipande, Givental, and Bertram(!).
