Spring School: Enumerative Invariants from Differential Graded Lie Algebras and Categories

Montegufoni Castle

Montegufoni Gardens

Spring School for Master & PhD students and Postdocs
March 25 - 31, 2018 in Italy http://www.montegufoni.it/Senior Speakers:
Andrei Caldararu
Tim Perutz

Helge Ruddat (ruddat)
Estelle Bonmann (ebonmann)
(respectively @uni-mainz.de)

Accepted participants will be provided shared rooms in the castle. We might be able to modestly subsidize travel costs by a lump sum per person.

We will organize and prepare meals ourselves.

Each participant will be asked to give a talk presenting material that we assign together beforehand. This will consist of works of Barannikov-Kontsevich, Costello-Li, Gross-Siebert and others.

Applications will be received until January 15, 2018. The number of participants is limited to 20.

Application Form



  1. Barannikov, Sergey; Kontsevich, Maxim: Frobenius Manifolds and Formality of Lie Algebras of Polyvector Fields.
  2. Caldararu, Andrei; Tu, Junwu: Computing a categorical Gromov-Witten invariant.
  3. Costello, Kevin J.; Li, Si: Quantum BCOV theory on Calabi-Yau manifolds and the higher genus B-model
  4. Ganatra, Sheel; Perutz, Timothy; Sheridan, Nick: Mirror symmetry - from categories to curve Counts.
  5. Mark Gross, Bernd Siebert: Intrinsic mirror symmetry and punctured Gromov-Witten invariants.
