ABSTRACT | Abstract: I will discuss the formalism of equivariant cohomology and how it leads to the Bott fixed point formula for certain integrals on spaces with circle actions. The focus of these lectures will be on the generalization of this formula to virtual integrals and its application to the numerical invariants of algebraic varieties coming from Gromov-Witten and Donaldson type theories.
