and the Topological String
"... Motivated by the recent conjecture of Ooguri, Strominger and Vafa, we compute the semicanonical partition function of BPS black holes in N = 4 and N = 8 string theories, to all orders in perturbation theory. Not only are the black hole partition functions surprisingly simple; they capture the full ..."

topological string amplitudes, as expected from the OSV conjecture. The agreement is not perfect, however, as there are differences between the black hole and topological string partition functions even at the perturbative level. We propose a minimal modification of the OSV conjecture, in which
Superstrings and topological strings at large
 Nā, J. Math. Phys
"... We embed the large N ChernSimons/topological string duality in ordinary superstrings. This corresponds to a large N duality between generalized gauge systems with N = 1 supersymmetry in 4 dimensions and superstrings propagating on noncompact CalabiYau manifolds with certain fluxes turned on. We a ..."

Topological strings and . . .

"... We consider the topological Bmodel on local CalabiYau geometries. We show how one can solve for the amplitudes by using Walgebra symmetries which encodes the symmetries of holomorphic diffeomorphisms of the CalabiYau. In the highly effective fermionic/brane formulation this leads to a free fermi ..."

Furthermore we argue that topological strings on CalabiYau geometries provide a unifying picture connecting noncritical (super)strings, integrable hierarchies, and various matrix models. In particular we show how the ordinary matrix model, the double scaling limit
N=4 topological strings

, 1995
"... We show how to make a topological string theory starting from an N = 4 superconformal theory. The critical dimension for this theory is Ä = 2 (c = 6). It is shown that superstrings (in both the RNS and GS formulations) and critical N = 2 strings are special cases of this topological theory. Applicat ..."

Knot invariants and topological strings

"... We find further evidence for the conjecture relating large N ChernSimons theory on S3 with topological string on the resolved conifold geometry by showing that the Wilson loop observable of a simple knot on S3 (for any representation) agrees to all orders in N with the corresponding quantity on the ..."

"... In this talk we give a brief review of the algebraic structure behind the open and closed topological strings and Dbranes and emphasize the role of tensor category and the Frobenius algebra. Also, we speculate on the possibility of generalizing the topological strings and the Dbranes through the s ..."

The Holomorphic Anomaly of Topological Strings

"... Abstract: We show that the BRS operator of the topological string B model is not holomorphic in the complex structure of the target space. This implies that the socalled holomorphic anomaly of topological strings should not be interpreted as a BRS anomaly. 1 ..."

In this paper we show how Sduality of type IIB superstrings leads to an Sduality relating A and B model topological strings on the same CalabiYau as had been conjectured recently: Dinstantons of the Bmodel correspond to Amodel perturbative amplitudes and Dinstantons of the Amodel capture per ..."
