On the Curve countings, modular forms and Seiberg-Witten theory


Speaker: Aiko Liu, UC Berkeley
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Thu, Apr 21 2005, 4:10PM

In this talk we will survey Taubes' 'SW=GR' and the nodal curve counting on algebraic surfaces. We will discuss the modularity results on the curve counting and its relation with string theory and family Seiberg-Witten theory as well.
