Abstract: The moduli spaces of holomorphic curves have an intriguing structure, reflected in the structure of the Gromov-Witten invariants. One way to get a glimpse into this structure is to follow what happens to the moduli spaces during (symplectic) degenerations, for example those coming from a generalized version of the symplectic sum. This involves the moduli space of pseudo-holomorphic maps relative a normal crossing divisor. In these talks we outline the construction of this relative moduli space and discuss some of its properties.
