Gromov-Witten numbers of elliptic curves

We implement a formula for computing the number of covers of elliptic curves. It has beed obtained by proving mirror symmetry
for arbitrary genus by tropical methods in [BBM]. A Feynman graph of genus g is a trivalent, connected graph of genus g (with 2g-2 vertices and 3g-3 edges). The branch type b=(b_1,...,b_(3g-3)) of a stable map is the multiplicity of the the edge i over a fixed base point.

Given a Feynman graph G and a branch type b, we obtain the number N_(G,b) of stable maps of branch type b from a genus g curve of topological type G to the elliptic curve by computing a path integral
over a rational function. The path integral is computed as a residue.

The sum of N_(G,b) over all branch types b of sum d gives N_(G,d)*|Aut(G)|, with the Gromov-Witten invariant N_(G,d) of degree d stable maps from a genus g curve of topological type G to the elliptic curve.

The sum of N_(G,d) over all such graphs gives the usual Gromov-Witten invariant N_(g,d) of degree d stable maps from a genus g curve to the elliptic curve.

The key function computing the numbers N_(G,b) and N_(G,d) is gromovWitten.
