Abstract: I will survey some recent work on gauged versions of Gromov-Witten theory.
I: Background on Gromov-Witten theory. Quantum cohomology and quantum K-theory. Open questions.
II: Various approaches to gauged Gromov-Witten theory: Givental, Mundet-Tian, Ciocan-Fontanine-Kim-Maulik.
III: Quantum Kirwan map and the adiabatic limit theory. Other approaches.
