## Quotes[edit]

- Enumerative geometry is an old subject that has been revisited extensively over the past 150 years. Enumerative geometry was an active field in the 19th century. … Unfortunately, many fundamental enumerative problems eluded the best mathematicians for most of the 20th century. Progress came from a seemingly unlikely source: string theory in physics.
