Abstract
The aim of these three lectures is to introduce a formalism called abstract quantum field theories and their realizations.

The first two lectures will be pedagogical, in which I will recall some preliminaries of moduli spaces of curves, formal Gaussian integrals, integration over Hermitian matrices, and their relation to Feynman graphs. These results are well-known in literatures.

In the third lecture I will introduce the construction of the abstract QFT for stable graphs and fat graphs, and their realizations. This is a joint work with J. Zhou. We define the abstract partition function and abstract free energy as formal summations of graphs, and derive recursion relations for them using operators inspired by geometry of moduli spaces of curves. By assigning Feynman rules, we obtain some specific theories or problems and their recursion relations (such as the holomorphic anomaly type equations, Virasoro constraints, etc.) in this way.
