This is the first monograph dedicated to the systematic exposition of the whole variety of topics related to quantum cohomology. The subject first originated in theoretical physics (quantum string theory) and has continued to develop extensively over the last decade. The author's approach to quantum cohomology is based on the notion of the Frobenius manifold. The first part of the book is devoted to this notion and its extensive interconnections with algebraic formalism of operads, differential equations, perturbations, and geometry. In the second part of the book, the author describes the construction of quantum cohomology and reviews the algebraic geometry mechanisms involved in this construction (intersection and deformation theory of Deligne-Artin and Mumford stacks). Yuri Manin is currently the director of the Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik in Bonn, Germany. He has authored and coauthored 10 monographs and almost 200 research articles in algebraic geometry, number theory, mathematical physics, history of culture, and psycholinguistics. Manin's books, such as Cubic Forms: Algebra, Geometry, and Arithmetic (1974), A Course in Mathematical Logic (1977), Gauge Field Theory and Complex Geometry (1988), Elementary Particles: Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy (1989, with I. Yu. Kobzarev), Topics in Non-commutative Geometry (1991), and Methods of Homological Algebra (1996, with S. I. Gelfand), secured for him solid recognition as an excellent expositor. Undoubtedly the present book will serve mathematicians for many years to come.

Quantum cohomology, the theory of Frobenius manifolds and the relations to integrable systems are flourishing areas since the early 90's. An activity was organized at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, with the purpose of bringing together the main experts in these areas. This volume originates from this activity and presents the state of the art in the subject.

Based on a series of graduate lectures, this book provides an introduction to algebraic geometric methods in the theory of complex linear differential equations. Starting from basic notions in complex algebraic geometry, it develops some of the classical problems of linear differential equations. It ends with applications to recent research questions related to mirror symmetry. The fundamental tool used is that of a vector bundle with connection. The book includes complete proofs, and applications to recent research questions. Aimed at graduate students and researchers, the book assumes some familiarity with basic complex algebraic geometry.

Gauge theory, symplectic geometry and symplectic topology are important areas at the crossroads of several mathematical disciplines. The present book, with expertly written surveys of recent developments in these areas, includes some of the first expository material of Seiberg-Witten theory, which has revolutionised the subjects since its introduction in late 1994. Topics covered include: introductions to Seiberg-Witten theory, to applications of the S-W theory to four-dimensional manifold topology, and to the classification of symplectic manifolds; an introduction to the theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves and to quantum cohomology; algebraically integrable Hamiltonian systems and moduli spaces; the stable topology of gauge theory, Morse-Floer theory; pseudo-convexity and its relations to symplectic geometry; generating functions; Frobenius manifolds and topological quantum field theory.

This volume contains the proceedings of the 2016 AMS von Neumann Symposium on Topological Recursion and its Influence in Analysis, Geometry, and Topology, which was held from July 4–8, 2016, at the Hilton Charlotte University Place, Charlotte, North Carolina. The papers contained in the volume present a snapshot of rapid and rich developments in the emerging research field known as topological recursion. It has its origin around 2004 in random matrix theory and also in Mirzakhani's work on the volume of moduli spaces of hyperbolic surfaces. Topological recursion has played a fundamental role in connecting seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics such as matrix models, enumeration of Hurwitz numbers and Grothendieck's dessins d'enfants, Gromov-Witten invariants, the A-polynomials and colored polynomial invariants of knots, WKB analysis, and quantization of Hitchin moduli spaces. In addition to establishing these topics, the volume includes survey papers on the most recent key accomplishments: discovery of the unexpected relation to semi-simple cohomological field theories and a solution to the remodeling conjecture. It also provides a glimpse into the future research direction; for example, connections with the Airy structures, modular functors, Hurwitz-Frobenius manifolds, and ELSV-type formulas.

The third volume in this sequence of books consists of a collection of contributions that aims to describe the recent progress in nonlinear differential equations and nonlinear dynamical systems (both continuous and discrete). Nonlinear Systems and Their Remarkable Mathematical Structures: Volume 3, Contributions from China just like the first two volumes, consists of contributions by world-leading experts in the subject of nonlinear systems, but in this instance only featuring contributions by leading Chinese scientists who also work in China (in some cases in collaboration with western scientists). Features Clearly illustrate the mathematical theories of nonlinear systems and its progress to both the non-expert and active researchers in this area . Suitable for graduate students in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and some of the Engineering Sciences. Written in a careful pedagogical manner by those experts who have been involved in the research themselves, and each contribution is reasonably self-contained.

The aim of this CIME Session was to review the state of the art in the recent development of the theory of integrable systems and their relations with quantum groups. The purpose was to gather geometers and mathematical physicists to allow a broader and more complete view of these attractive and rapidly developing fields. The papers contained in this volume have at the same time the character of survey articles and of research papers, since they contain both a survey of current problems and a number of original contributions to the subject.
