A Mathematical Theory of the Topological Vertex
Abstract
We have developed a mathematical theory of the topological vertexa theory that was original proposed by M. Aganagic, A. Klemm, M. Marino, and C. Vafa in hepth/0305132 on effectively computing GromovWitten invariants of smooth toric CalabiYau threefolds derived from duality between open string theory of smooth CalabiYau threefolds and ChernSimons theory on three manifolds.
