Spectral curve topological recursion associates an infinite family of multi-differentials to a spectral curve. It turns out that under the proper choice of spectral curve these multi-differentials become generating functions for many well-known objects in mathematics, like Gromov-Witten invariants, knot polynomials (Jones, HOMFLY) and Hurwitz numbers. This thesis provides an overview of general topological recursion technique and examples of applications to selected problems in enumerative geometry and graph theory. The original research results include proof of the particular case of the Bouchard-Marino conjecture and derivation of a necessary condition for topological recursion applicability to numerical sequence through condition on its subsequence corresponding to genus zero and Young diagram with two rows.

Student Theses at HSE must be completed in accordance with the University Rules and regulations specified by each educational programme.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.

Student theses are objects of copyright and their use is subject to limitations in accordance with the Russian Federation’s law on intellectual property.

In the event that a thesis is quoted or otherwise used, reference to the author’s name and the source of quotation is required.
