Abstract: The Remodeling Conjecture proposed by Bouchard-Klemm-Marino-Pasquetti (BKMP) relates the all genus open and closed Gromov-Witten invariants of a semi-projective toric Calabi-Yau 3-manifold/3-orbifold to the Eynard-Orantin invariants of its mirror curve. It is an all genus open-closed mirror symmetry for toric Calabi-Yau 3-manifolds/3-orbifolds. In this talk, I will talk about the proof of the Remodeling Conjecture in arXiv: 1604.07123 which is a joint work with Bohan Fang and Melissa Liu. The key idea of the proof is to realize both A-model and B-model higher genus potentials as quantizations of two isomorphic semi-simple Frobenius structures. Thursday, 21 February 2019 at 1:30pm
