We define higher quantum Airy structures as generalizations of the Kontsevich-Soibelman quantum Airy structures by allowing differential operators of arbitrary order (instead of only quadratic). We construct many classes of examples of higher quantum Airy structures as modules of $\mathcal{W}(\mathfrak{g})$ algebras at self-dual level, with $\mathfrak{g}= \mathfrak{gl}_{N+1}$, $\mathfrak{so}_{2 N }$ or $\mathfrak{e}_N$. We discuss their enumerative geometric meaning in the context of (open and… 
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 New Class of Higher Quantum Airy Structures as Modules of $\mathcal{W}(\mathfrak{gl}_r)$-Algebras
Quantum $r$-Airy structures can be constructed as modules of $\mathcal{W}(\mathfrak{gl}_r)$-algebras via restriction of twisted modules for the underlying Heisenberg algebra. In this paper we
Airy Structures for Semisimple Lie Algebras
We give a complete classification of Airy structures for finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras over $${\mathbb {C}}$$ C , and to some extent also over $${\mathbb {R}}$$ R , up to isomorphisms
Airy structures and deformations of curves in surfaces
An embedded curve in a symplectic surface $\Sigma\subset X$ defines a smooth deformation space $\mathcal{B}$ of nearby embedded curves. A key idea of Kontsevich and Soibelman arXiv:1701.09137
Relations on $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}$ and the negative $r$-spin Witten conjecture
We construct and study various properties of a negative spin version of the Witten r-spin class. By taking the top Chern class of a certain vector bundle on the moduli space of twisted spin curves
$${\mathcal {N}}=1$$ super topological recursion
We introduce the notion of $${\mathcal {N}}=1$$ N = 1 abstract super loop equations and provide two equivalent ways of solving them. The first approach is a recursive formalism that can be
Shifted Witten classes and topological recursion
A BSTRACT . The Witten r -spin class defines a non-semisimple cohomological field theory. Pandharipande, Pixton and Zvonkine studied two special shifts of the Witten class along two semisimple
Super Quantum Airy Structures
It is proved that to a given super quantum Airy structure one can assign a unique set of free energies, which satisfy a supersymmetric generalization of the topological recursion.
Quantum curves from refined topological recursion: the genus 0 case
. We formulate geometrically (without reference to physical models) a refined topological recursion applicable to genus zero curves of degree two, inspired by Chekhov-Eynard and Marchal, introducing
Seiberg-Witten Theory and Topological Recursion
Kontsevich-Soibelman (2017) reformulated Eynard-Orantin topological recursion (2007) in terms of Airy structure which provides some geometrical insights into the relationship between the moduli space


The ABCD of topological recursion
Kontsevich and Soibelman reformulated and slightly generalised the topological recursion of math-ph/0702045, seeing it as a quantization of certain quadratic Lagrangians in $T^*V$ for some vector
$\mathcal {W}$-constraints for the total descendant potential of a simple singularity
Abstract Simple, or Kleinian, singularities are classified by Dynkin diagrams of type $ADE$. Let $\mathfrak {g}$ be the corresponding finite-dimensional Lie algebra, and $W$ its Weyl group. The set
Virasoro Constraints and Topological Recursion for Grothendieck’s Dessin Counting
We compute the number of coverings of $${\mathbb{C}P^1 {\setminus} \{0, 1, {\infty}\}}$$CP1\{0,1,∞} with a given monodromy type over $${\infty}$$∞ and given numbers of preimages of 0 and 1. We show
A new cohomology class on the moduli space of curves
We define a collection of cohomology classes $\Theta_{g,n}\in H^{4g-4+2n}(\overline{\cal M}_{g,n})$ for $2g-2+n>0$ that restrict naturally to boundary divisors. We prove that a generating function
Witten’s top Chern class on the moduli space of higher spin curves
This paper is a sequel to [9]. Its goal is to verify that the virtual top Chern class c 1/r in the Chow group of the moduli space of higher spin curves \(\overline M _{{g,n}}^{{1/r}} \) constructed
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
Screening operators for $$\mathcal {W}$$W-algebras
Let $$\mathfrak {g}$$g be a simple finite-dimensional Lie superalgebra with a non-degenerate supersymmetric even invariant bilinear form, f a nilpotent element in the even part of $$\mathfrak {g}$$g,
Topological recursion on the Bessel curve
The Witten-Kontsevich theorem states that a certain generating function for intersection numbers on the moduli space of stable curves is a tau-function for the KdV integrable hierarchy. This
$\mathcal{W}$-algebra constraints and topological recursion for $A_N$-singularity
We derive a Bouchard--Eynard type topological recursion for the total descendant potential of $A_N$-singularity. Our argument relies on a certain twisted representation of a Heisenberg Vertex
A Generalized Topological Recursion for Arbitrary Ramification
The Eynard–Orantin topological recursion relies on the geometry of a Riemann surface S and two meromorphic functions x and y on S. To formulate the recursion, one must assume that x has only simple
