The Yau-Zaslow conjecture / KMPS theorem

Reading Group on Homological Mirror Symmetry and K3 Surfaces
Topic:The Yau-Zaslow conjecture / KMPS theorem
Speaker:Amitai Zernik
Affiliation:Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Wednesday, February 1
Time/Room:1:00pm - 2:30pm/Dilworth Room

In this talk I'll describe a proof of Klemm, Maulik, Pandharipande and Scheidegger of the Yau Zaslow conjecture, which equates the generating function for reduced Gromov-Witten invariants of a K3 surface with the generating function of partitions to the power of 24. The talk will not assume familiarity with the material discussed in the first term, all are welcome.
