La géométrie énumérative est un très joli domaine des mathématiques où de nombreux problèmes de base peuvent être résolus à l’aide de quelques idées astucieuses. Cependant, les techniques requises pour traiter un problème énumératif complexe ou réel plus général deviennent rapidement sophistiquées, et leur maîtrise demande beaucoup de temps et d’investissement. Il est aussi possible de compter des courbes tropicales.

    2 que pour une configuration de points ω dans C2 , les courbes de C(d, g, ω) sont données par les racines d’un polynôme dans C[X], dont le degré, et donc le nombre de racines, ne dépend pas du choix de la configuration générique ω. Si les points pi sont dans R2 , alors ce polynôme est dans R[X]. Maintenant, le nombre de racines réelles d’un polynôme réel ne dépend pas uniquement du degré du polynôme, mais aussi de ses coefficients. 19 a peu de chance d’être vraie dans le cas réel : le cardinal de RC(d, g, ω) dépend de la configuration ω choisie !

    Ainsi, les formules obtenues sont différentes, en ce sens que la formule de Kontsevich n’est pas une sous-formule de la formule de Caporaso et Harris. 25, nous pouvons calculer tous les nombres N (d, 0).
