  • We give a mathematical account of a recent string theory calcula- tion which predicts the number of rational curves on the generic quintic three- fold. Our account involves the interpretation of Yukawa couplings in terms of variations of Hodge structure, a new q-expansion principle for functions on the moduli space of Calabi-Yau manifolds, and the "mirror symmetry" phe- nomenon recently observed by string theorists.
