## How to be discrete in complicated situations (getting involved with Gromov-Witten and Macdonald)

##### Abstract:

We will talk about how a combinatorial approach to multiplying polynomials is useful in the study of Gromov-Witten invariants (constants arising in String Theory) and Macdonald coefficients (polynomials in 2 parameters tied to Representation Theory and Geometry). No background beyond undergraduate math is needed.
