If you have a question about this talk, please contact Andrea Brini. Using a technique inspired by Hitchinâ€™s spectral curve construction, we study a version of Donaldson-Thomas invariants which Katz has proposed as a mathematical definition of genus 0 GV invariants. In particular, we are interested in understanding the relation between Katz invariants and genus 0 GW invariants. We will see that, in the reduced class case, the above mentioned technique will allow us to express the local contributions to the invariants of a fixed curve in terms of maps from curves homeomorphic to genus 0 ones. The above result leads to the desired answer in the case of curves with ordinary m-fold points as singularities; we will conclude suggesting a way adjust the technique in order to understand the genus 0 GW/GV correspondence for more general curves.
