I will review the Maulik-Nekrasov-Okounkov-Pandharipande conjecture, relating two different ways of counting curves in an algebraic variety X of dimension 3 or less. The first counts holomorphic maps of curves into X, or parameterised curves, and gives Gromov-Witten theory. The second counts embedded curves in X cut out by equations, or unparameterised curves, and is called stable pair theory. The conjecture is that these theories contain the same information, but with a complicated, mysterious transformation between the two sets of invariants. I will describe an applica

In these lectures, the notion of the topological recursion is introduced through enumerative geometry problems, such as counting simple Hurwitz numbers and the number of lattice points on the moduli space of pointed curves.

I will give two lectures on the intersection theory of the moduli space of curves: tautological classes, relations, integral calculus, and cycle formulas. The role of the virtual fundamental class of the moduli of stable maps will be highlighted. In the second lecture, I will discuss the recent proof of Pixton's formula for double ramification cycles (joint work with Janda, Pixton, and Zvonkine).
