The geometry seminar scheduled for Tuesday 24th November **has been cancelled**. The speaker would have been François Charette (Max Planck, Bonn). We hope to invite him to come another time. For interest, we keep his title and abstract here: *Quantum Reidemeister torsion and open Gromov-Witten invariants*. [Read more…]
