Gromov–Witten invariants have been constructed to be deformation invariant, but their behavior under other transformations is subtle. We show that logarithmic Gromov–Witten invariants are also invariant under appropriately defined logarithmic modifications. 

Quantum mirrors of log Calabi–Yau surfaces and higher-genus curve counting

Gross, Hacking and Keel have constructed mirrors of log Calabi–Yau surfaces in terms of counts of rational curves. Using $q$-deformed scattering diagrams defined in terms of higher-genus log

Relative quantum cohomology under birational transformations

. We study how relative quantum cohomology, defined in [TY20b] and [FWY20], varies under birational transformations. For toric complete intersections with simple normal crossings divisors that contain


We prove the Abelian/non-Abelian Correspondence with bundles for target spaces that are partial flag bundles, combining and generalising results by Ciocan-Fontanine–Kim– Sabbah, Brown, and Oh. From

Theta functions, broken lines and 2-marked log Gromov-Witten invariants

. Theta functions were defined for varieties with effective anticanonical divisor [GHS] and are related to certain punctured Gromov-Witten invariants [ACGS2]. In this paper we show that in the case of

Gromov–Witten theory with maximal contacts

Abstract We propose an intersection-theoretic method to reduce questions in genus 0 logarithmic Gromov–Witten theory to questions in the Gromov–Witten theory of smooth pairs, in the presence of

The Abelian/Nonabelian Correspondence and Gromov–Witten Invariants of Blow-Ups

Abstract We prove the abelian/nonabelian correspondence with bundles for target spaces that are partial flag bundles, combining and generalising results by Ciocan-Fontanine–Kim–Sabbah, Brown, and Oh.

Birational Invariance in Punctured Log Gromov-Witten Theory

Given a log smooth scheme ( X, D ), and a log ´etale modification ( ˜ X, ˜ D ) → ( X, D ), we relate the punctured Gromov-Witten theory of ( ˜ X, ˜ D ) to the punctured Gromov-Witten theory of ( X, D

Logarithmic Gromov–Witten theory with expansions

We construct a version of relative Gromov-Witten theory with expanded degenerations in the normal crossings setting and establish a degeneration formula for the resulting invariants. Given a simple

Using heuristics from mirror symmetry, combinations of Gross, Hacking, Keel, Kontsevich, and Siebert have given combinatorial constructions of canonical bases of "theta functions" on the coordinate

The Log Product Formula.

We prove a formula expressing the Log Gromov-Witten Invariants of a product of log smooth varieties $V \times W$ in terms of the invariants of $V$ and $W$. This extends results of F. Qu and Y.P. Lee,



Higher genus Gromov–Witten invariants as genus zero invariants of symmetric products

I prove a formula expressing the descendent genus g Gromov-Witten invariants of a projective variety X in terms of genus 0 invariants of its symmetric product stack Sg+1(X). When X is a point, the

Comparison theorems for Gromov–Witten invariants of smooth pairs and of degenerations

We consider four approaches to relative Gromov-Witten theory and Gromov-Witten theory of degenerations: Jun Li's original approach, Bumsig Kim's logarithmic expansions, Abramovich-Fantechi's orbifold

Gromov-Witten invariants of blow-ups along points and curves

Abstract. In this paper, using the gluing formula of Gromov-Witten invariants under symplectic cutting, due to Li and Ruan, we studied the Gromov-Witten invariants of blow-ups at a smooth point or

Stable logarithmic maps to Deligne-Faltings pairs II

We make an observation which enables one to deduce the existence of an algebraic stack of log maps for all generalized Deligne--Faltings log structures (in particular simple normal crossings divisor)

Moduli of morphisms of logarithmic schemes

We show that there is a logarithmic algebraic space parameterizing logarithmic morphisms between fixed logarithmic schemes when those logarithmic schemes satisfy natural hypotheses. As a corollary,

Boundedness of the space of stable logarithmic maps

We prove that the moduli space of stable logarithmic maps from logarithmic curves to a fixed target logarithmic scheme is a proper algebraic stack when the target scheme is projective with fine and

Stable logarithmic maps to Deligne-Faltings pairs I

We introduce a new compactification of the space of relative stable maps. This new method uses logarithmic geoemtry in the sense of Kato-Fontaine-Illusie rather than the expanded degeneration. The

Gromov–Witten invariants of blow-ups along submanifolds with convex normal bundles

Given a submanifold Z inside X, let Y be the blow-up of X along Z. When the normal bundle of Z in X is convex with a minor assumption, we prove that genus-zero GW-invariants of Y with cohomology
