The Moduli spaces that parametrise the finite energy solution to elliptic partial differential equations from physics provide deep information for geometry and physics at both small and large scales. In this talk, I will explain some of my recent work with Bohui Chen and Anmin Li on foundation of Gromov -Witten theory. The virtual technique developed can be applied to more general geometric elliptic PDEs to extract geometric invariants. I will give a brief and accessible overview of this virtual technique.
