Curve Counting and Log Geometry

Project description

Advancing understanding of Gromov-Witten and enumerative geometry

In mathematics, Gromov-Witten invariants are rational numbers that could count algebraic curves meeting prescribed conditions in given algebraic varieties. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the LOGEO project aims to apply Gromov-Witten invariants to address questions in a broad range of mathematical areas: sheaf counting theories, mirror symmetry and moduli theory of curves. Researchers will also use logarithmic geometry, a modern variant of algebraic geometry developed to deal with two fundamental problems – compactification and degeneration – that has significantly advanced knowledge on these areas. Project results are expected to break new ground in enumerative geometry and increase understanding of curve-counting.
