Abstract: 

In 1994, Seiberg and Witten used a clever approach  to obtain the low energy dynamics of a certain supersymmetric gauge theory.  Using monodromy data obtained from physical considerations they observed  that the physics was encoded in an elliptic curve. The talk will describe the  physics problem and the solution.  It will also briefly address the connection  with the partition function of Nekrasov and a conjectured relation to the  topological recursion of Eynard and Orantin.
