Algebraic and symplectic Gromov-Witten invariants coincide
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 49 (1999) no. 6, pp. 1743-1795.

For a complex projective manifold Gromov-Witten invariants can be constructed either algebraically or symplectically. Using the versions of Gromov-Witten theory by Behrend and Fantechi on the algebraic side and by the author on the symplectic side, we prove that both points of view are equivalent

Pour une variété complexe projective il est possible de construire les invariants de Gromov-Witten avec des méthodes algébriques ou symplectiques. Utilisant l’approche algébrique de Behrend et Fantechi et l’approche symplectique de l’auteur, on prouve l’équivalence des deux points de vue.
