### The topological string beyond supersymmetry

**Colloquium**

Speaker: | Mina Aganagic, UC Berkeley |

Topological string theory has led to many exciting results at the intersection of mathematics and physics. This relied heavily on supersymmetry, which makes exact results possible. Today, a new picture is beginning to emerge, where the tools of the topological string are applicable to real world physics without supersymmetry.
