DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mr. SCHIMANNEK\, Thorsten (University of Bonn)\nThe
topological string theory partition function captures non-trivial invarian
ts of Calabi-Yau threefolds. In general\, target space symmetries acting o
n the cohomology induce an automorphic structure on the free energies. For
non-compact geometries with spectral curve of genus one this allowed to r
e-express the physical constraints in terms of modular forms. The construc
tion\, however\, relied on a certain quasi modular object\, the second Eis
enstein series. We generalise this procedure to spectral curves of genus t
wo and show that the appropriate automorphic objects are Siegel modular fo
rms. In particular\, we propose an analogue for the second Eisenstein seri
es and a generalised Ramanujan identity both of which have not previously
been described in the mathematical literature.\nOn this class of geometrie
s we provide a straightforward recipe for solving the topological string.\
