Title: Gromov-Witten theory of elliptic fibrations
Abstract: Let X be a variety. Gromov-Witten invariants of X are defined by integrals on the moduli space of stable maps from a genus g curve to X. I will describe a conjecture interpreting these invariants as coefficients of certain automorphic forms if X is the total space of an elliptic fibration X -> B. I will also discuss a relationship between this conjecture and Givental's R-matrix action on cohomological field theories. This is joint work with Georg Oberdieck.
