Variations of mixed Hodge structure, Higgs fields, and quantum cohomology

Following C. Simpson, we show that every variation of graded-polarized mixed Hodge structure defined over ℚ carries a natural Higgs bundle structure \(\) which is invariant under the ℂ* action studied in . We then specialize our construction to the context of , and show that the resulting Higgs field θ determines (and is determined by) the Gromov–Witten potential of the underlying family of Calabi–Yau threefolds.
