Abstract: A symplectic manifold (M,\omega) is a smooth manifold M with a closed nondegenerate 2-form \omega. By studying the space of J-holomorphic spheres in M we end up with the Gromov-Witten invariant. In this master thesis presentation I will describe main ideas of the Gromov-Witten invariant and carry out an explicit calculation of the invariant for CPn with the Fubini-Study form.
