Title: Orbifold Quantum Riemann-Roch
Speaker: Professor Hsian-Hua Tseng
Speaker Info: University of British Columbia & MSRI
Brief Description:
Special Note: The speaker will arrive on January 18 (early morning) and leave on January 28 (afternoon).

Given a vector bundle on a Kahler manifold and a characteristic class, T. Coates and A. Givental studied Gromov-Witten invariants twisted by these data. They proved a quantum Riemann-Roch theorem which relates the twisted invariants with the untwisted ones. In this talk we will discuss a generalization of their results to orbifold target spaces.
