2023 Simons Math Summer Workshop: Week 3 – August 21-25, 2023

WEEK 3:  INTEGRABLE SYSTEMS METHODS IN ENUMERATIVE GEOMETRY  In the early 90’s Witten, motivated by a matrix model description of topological gravity, conjectured that the intersection numbers of tautological classes on moduli spaces of curves are governed by the KdV integrable hierarchy. Witten’s conjecture was first proven by Kontsevich, and his proofs as well as […]
