In this course, I will first develop some basic aspects of the moduli space of stable curves and Gromov-Witten theory. Then I will discuss some interesting dualities in enumerative geometry. These include the large N duality, which relates the knot invariants to the open Gromov-Witten invariants of the resolved conifold, the topological vertex theory, and the Gromov-Witten/Donaldson-Thomas correspondence for toric 3-folds.

Some knowledge of algebraic geometry and the moduli of curves will be helpful
