Title : Curve counting on Abelian surfaces and threefolds and Jacobi forms.
Abstract : BPS state counting can often be formulated in terms of curve counting. We explain how generating functions for curve counting problems on Abelian surfaces and threefolds are given by a certain nice Jacobi form. A new computational technique mixes motivic and toric methods and makes a connection between the topological vertex and Jacobi forms.
