We describe a formalism based on quantization of quadratic hamiltonians and symplectic actions of loop groups which provides a convenient home for most of known general results and conjectures about GromovWitten invariants of compact symplectic manifolds and, more generally, Frobenius structures at higher genus. We state several results illustrating the formalism and its use. In particular, we establish Virasoro constraints for semisimple Frobenius structures and outline a proof of the Virasoro conjecture for Gromov – Witten invariants of complex projective spaces and other Fano toric manifolds. Details will be published elsewhere.

We propose and study the following Mirror Principle: certain sequences of multiplicative equivariant characteristic classes on Kontsevich’s stable map moduli spaces can be computed in terms of certain hypergeometric type classes. As applications, we compute the equivariant Euler classes of obstruction bundles induced by any concavex bundles – including any direct sum of line bundles – on Pn. This includes proving the formula of Candelasde la OssaGreenParkes hence completing the program of Candelas et al, Kontesevich, Manin, and Givental, to compute rigorously the instanton prepotential function for the quintic in P4. We derive, among many other examples, the multiple cover formula for GromovWitten invariants of P1, computed earlier by MorrisonAspinwall and by Manin in different approaches. We also prove a formula for enumerating Euler classes which arise in the socalled local mirror symmetry for some noncompact CalabiYau manifolds. At the end we interprete an infinite dimensional transformation group, called the mirror group, acting on Euler data, as a certain duality group of the linear sigma

For a nonsingular projective 3fold X, we define integer invariants virtually enumerating pairs (C,D) where C ⊂ X is an embedded curve and D ⊂ C is a divisor. A virtual class is constructed on the associated moduli space by viewing a pair as an object in the derived category of X. The resulting invariants are conjecturally equivalent, after universal transformations, to both the GromovWitten and DT theories of X. For CalabiYau 3folds, the latter equivalence should be viewed as a wallcrossing formula in the derived category. Several calculations of the new invariants are carried out. In the Fano case, the local contributions of nonsingular embedded curves are found. In the local toric CalabiYau case, a completely new form of the topological vertex is described. The virtual enumeration of pairs is closely related to the geometry underlying the BPS state counts of Gopakumar and Vafa. We
