# Topological Recursion

Summer School of the TRR 195 and the Graduiertenkolleg “Experimental and constructive algebra”,

Tübingen, Aug 27-31, 2018

### Description:

The topological recursion is a recursive fomula which computes a family of differential forms associated to given a spectral curve. It turns out these forms admit nice mathematical properties and compute interesting quantities in various field of mathematics. To mention some relations, the topological recursion computes- Correlations functions in Random Matrix Theory,
- Hurwitz numbers in Enumerative Geometry.
- Gromov-Witten invariants and intersection numbers

The school is organized as follows. There will be lectures and tutorials held by leading experts. Moreover we will also cover a computational part, with an introductionary class on the use of the computer algebra system GAP for various types of factorization problems in the symmetric group (like different versions of Hurwitz numbers).
