The next session of the Geometry Seminar of ICMS
will be held on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 16:00, in room 403 and via Zoom.

A talk on:

Refined curve counting

will be delivered by Mikhail Shkolnikov, IMI-BAS.

Abstract: Refining an enumerative problem upgrades the numerical solution to a polynomial so that its specialization gives the original number. A prototypical example of such refinement arises in the tropical curve counting from replacing Mikhalkin multiplicities, corresponding to counting complex curves, with Block-Goettsche multiplicities. I will speak about the invariance of this count and its various interpretations.
