Title: Mirror maps for hypersurfaces and ordinary differential equations


Algebraic structures arising in symplectic topology typically have
formal parameters (called Kaehler moduli or Novikov parameters). Dependence
on those parameters is typically complicated, but one of the surprising aspects
of mirror symmetry is that they can understood on a deep level. I will explain one
viewpoint on this (partly conjectural), in the context of Lefschetz fibrations.
