Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss an analytical approach to the problem of counting holomorphic curves with prescribed tangency conditions with a simple normal crossings (snc) divisor.  I will also compare certain aspects of my approach with the algebraic approach of Abramovich-Chen-Gross-Siebert  (known as Log Gromov-Witten theory) in the overlapping cases of interest.
