Time/Room:2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101

The theory of quantum homology, which originally arose from physics, is currently generating a great deal of interest, due in part to its striking predictions regarding enumerative algebraic geometry. In this talk we will introduce the quantum homology and discuss some of its algebraic properties. No background knowledge on the subject will be assumed.
