Tropical descendent Gromov-Witten invariants Ruddat, Helge


"Descendent Gromov-Witten invariants play a central role in canonical deformations of Landau-Ginzburg models as well as the multiplication rules of generalized theta functions, both relevant for (homological) mirror symmetry. In a joint work with Travis Mandel, I prove that tropical Gromov-Witten invariants with psi class conditions coincide with descendent log Gromov Witten invariants for smooth toric varieties whenever non-superabundance is given. We use toric degenerations a la facon de Siebert-Nishinou and we expect that our approach will be generalizable to Mumford or Gross-Siebert type degenerations."
