Tautological systems developed in [8, 9] are Picard-Fuchs type systems to study period integrals of complete intersections in Fano varieties. We generalize tautological systems to zero loci of global sections of vector bundles. In particular, we obtain similar criterion as in [8, 9] about holonomicity and regularity of the systems. We also prove solution rank formulas and geometric realizations of solutions following the work on hypersurfaces in homogeneous varieties .
Let X be a smooth complex projective variety. Using a construction devised by Gathmann, we present a recursive formula for some of the Gromov–Witten invariants of X. We prove that, when X is homogeneous, this formula gives the number of osculating rational curves at a general point of a general hypersurface of X. This generalizes the classical well known pairs of inflection (asymptotic) lines for surfaces in P^3 of Salmon, as well as Darboux’s 27 osculating conics.

For projective conifold transitions between Calabi-Yau threefolds X and Y, with X close to Y in the moduli, we show that the combined information provided by the A model (Gromov--Witten theory in all genera) and B model (variation of Hodge structures) on X, linked along the vanishing cycles, determines the corresponding combined information on Y. Similar result holds in the reverse direction when linked with the exceptional curves.
The mirror theorem is generalized to any smooth projective variety X. That is, a fundamental relation between the Gromov-Witten invariants of X and Gromov-Witten invariants of complete intersections Y in X is established.
A reconstruction theorem for genus 0 gravitational quantum cohomology and quantum K-theory is proved. A new linear equivalence in the Picard group of the moduli space of genus 0 stable maps relating the pull-backs of line bundles from the target via different markings is used for the reconstruction result. Examples of calculations in quantum cohomology and quantum K-theory are given.
In this paper we give a proposal for mirrors to (0,2) supersymmetric gauged linear sigma
models (GLSMs), for those (0,2) GLSMs which are deformations of (2,2) GLSMs. Specifically, we propose a construction of (0,2) mirrors for (0,2) GLSMs with E terms that are
linear and diagonal, reducing to both the Hori-Vafa prescription as well as a recent (2,2) nonabelian mirrors proposal on the (2,2) locus. For the special case of abelian (0,2) GLSMs, two
of the authors have previously proposed a systematic construction, which is both simplified
and generalized by the proposal here.
We introduce the notion of pseudo-N´eron model and give new examples of varieties admitting pseudo-N´eron models other than Abelian varieties. As an application of pseudo-N´eron models, given a scheme admitting a finite morphism to an Abelian scheme over a positive-dimensional base, we prove that for a very general genus-0, degree-d curve in the base with d sufficiently large, every section of the scheme over the curve is contained in a unique section over the entire base.
Tautological systems are Picard-Fuchs type systems arising from varieties with large symmetry. In this survey, we discuss recent
progress on the study of tautological systems. This includes tautological systems for vector bundles, a new construction of Jacobian rings for homogenous vector bundles, and relations between period integrals and zeta functions.
