We study the web of dualities relating various enumerative invariants, notably Gromov–Witten invariants and invariants that arise in topological gauge theory. In particular, we study Donaldson–Thomas gauge theory and its reductions to D=4D=4 and D=2D=2 which are relevant to the local theory of surfaces in Calabi–Yau threefolds.
