### enumerative Gromov-Witten invariants

Assume that $\mathcal{M}_{g,n}(X,A)$ is irreducible and of the expected dimension. Are the corresponding primary [i.e. no $\psi$ classes] Gromov-Witten invariants enumerative? How …

### Approximating higher dimension step function

Let $s \in R^{n}$ (meaning $s$ is $n \times 1$ vector), where $n$ is the dimension of the vector. The ideal sliding term, $\nu$ is taken to be: \nu = \frac …
