Thereis an interesting topology behind such classical questions as interpolation andsolving linear q-difference equations by integrals. It has to do with countingalgebraic curves in some very specific geometries, which can be also phrased ascomputing indices in certain (2+1)-dimensional supersymmetric QFTs. The talkswill be an introduction to this circle of ideas.
