Title: An Invitation to Topological String Theory

Abstract: I will introduce the beauty of interplay among quantum field theory in various dimensions. More concretely, I will give an elementary review of fascinating relations among topological A-models and B-models, Chern-Simons theory, Seiberg-Witten theory, and matrix models. This talk will be designed for nonexperts so everyone in theoretical physics is welcome to join, including students. Research talks with more technical details may follow next week (and onwards) if there are interests.
