The BKMP conjecture (2006–2008) proposed a new method to compute closed and open Gromov–Witten invariants for every toric Calabi–Yau 3-folds, through a topological recursion based on mirror symmetry. So far, this conjecture has been verified to low genus for several toric CY3folds, and proved to all genus only for $${\mathbb{C}^3}$$C3. In this article we prove the general case. Our proof is based on the fact that both sides of the conjecture can be naturally written in terms of combinatorial… 
Open Gromov-Witten Invariants of Toric Calabi-Yau 3-Folds
We present a proof of the mirror conjecture of Aganagic and Vafa (Mirror Symmetry, D-Branes and Counting Holomorphic Discs., 2000) and Aganagic et al. (Z
Open-closed Gromov-Witten invariants of 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau smooth toric DM stacks
We study open-closed orbifold Gromov-Witten invariants of 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau smooth toric DM stacks with respect to Lagrangian branes of Aganagic-Vafa type. We prove an open mirror theorem for
Topological strings, quiver varieties, and Rogers–Ramanujan identities
Motivated by some recent works on BPS invariants of open strings/knot invariants, we guess there may be a general correspondence between the Ooguri–Vafa invariants of toric Calabi–Yau 3-folds and
On the remodeling conjecture for toric Calabi-Yau 3-orbifolds
The Remodeling Conjecture proposed by Bouchard-Klemm-Mariño-Pasquetti (BKMP) relates the A-model open and closed topological string amplitudes (the all genus open and closed Gromov-Witten invariants)
Topological recursion, topological quantum field theory and Gromov-Witten invariants of BG
The purpose of this paper is to give a twisted version of the Eynard-Orantin topological recursion by a 2D Topological Quantum Field Theory. We define a kernel for a 2D TQFT and use an algebraic
On Gromov-Witten Invariants, Hurwitz Numbers and Topological Recursion
In this thesis, we present expositions of Gromov-Witten invariants, Hurwitz numbers, topological recursion and their connections. By remodeling theory, open Gromov-Witten invariants of C and C/Za

Gopakumar, Ooguri and Vafa famously proposed the existence of a correspondence between a topological gauge theory on one hand ($U(N)$ Chern-Simons theory on the three-sphere) and a topological string
Quantum topology and curve counting invariants
Gopakumar, Ooguri and Vafa famously proposed the existence of a correspondence between a topological gauge theory – U (N) Chern–Simons theory on the three-sphere – on one hand, and a topo-logical
Local topological recursion governs the enumeration of lattice points in $\overline{\mathcal M}_{g,n}$
The second author and Norbury initiated the enumeration of lattice points in the Deligne-Mumford compactifications of moduli spaces of curves. They showed that the enumeration may be expressed in
Higher Airy structures and topological recursion for singular spectral curves
We give elements towards the classification of quantum Airy structures based on the $W(\mathfrak{gl}_r)$-algebras at self-dual level based on twisted modules of the Heisenberg VOA of


A_{n-1} singularities and nKdV hierarchies
According to a conjecture of E. Witten proved by M. Kontsevich, a certain generating function for intersection indices on the Deligne -- Mumford moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces coincides with a
Combinatorial and algebro-geometric cohomology classes on the moduli spaces of curves
Based on the combinatorial description of the moduli spaces of curves provided by Strebel differentials, Witten and Kontsevich have introduced combinatorial cohomology classes
Topological Strings and (Almost) Modular Forms
The B-model topological string theory on a Calabi-Yau threefold X has a symmetry group Γ, generated by monodromies of the periods of X. This acts on the topological string wave function in a natural
Hodge integrals and Gromov-Witten theory
Integrals of the Chern classes of the Hodge bundle in Gromov-Witten theory are studied. We find a universal system of differential equations which determines the generating function of these
Hurwitz numbers, matrix models and enumerative geometry
We propose a new, conjectural recursion solution for Hurwitz numbers at all genera. This conjecture is based on recent progress in solving type B topological string theory on the mirrors of toric
Intersection numbers of spectral curves
We compute the symplectic invariants of an arbitrary spectral curve with only 1 branchpoint in terms of integrals of characteristic classes in the moduli space of curves. Our formula associates to
Gromov–Witten theory and Donaldson–Thomas theory, I
We conjecture an equivalence between the Gromov–Witten theory of 3-folds and the holomorphic Chern–Simons theory of Donaldson and Thomas. For Calabi–Yau 3-folds, the equivalence is defined by the
Gromov-Witten/Donaldson-Thomas correspondence for toric 3-folds
We prove the equivariant Gromov-Witten theory of a nonsingular toric 3-fold X with primary insertions is equivalent to the equivariant Donaldson-Thomas theory of X. As a corollary, the topological
A Matrix Model for the Topological String I: Deriving the Matrix Model
We construct a matrix model that reproduces the topological string partition function on arbitrary toric Calabi–Yau threefolds. This demonstrates, in accord with the BKMP “remodeling the B-model”
Evaluating tautological classes using only Hurwitz numbers
Hurwitz numbers count ramified covers of a Riemann surface with prescribed monodromy. As such, they are purely combinatorial objects. Tautological classes, on the other hand, are distinguished
