We would like to recall some basic definitions of the so-called Chekhov-Eynard-Orantin theory of topological recursion. Originally it was developed to compute the cumulants for a class of matrix model, but since then it has evolved to one of the key tools on the edge between combinatorics and algebraic geometry that helped to resolve some famous open conjectures.
In particular, it has appeared that the topological recursion can be proved for a large class of KP tau-functions from the Orlov-Scherbin family. We'll explain what extra properties of these tau-functions can be derived this way.
An example of a direct application of this circle of ideas is a recent proof (our joint work with Dunin-Barkowski, Kramer, and Popolitov) of the so-called r-ELSV formula conjectured by Zvonkine in mid 2000's. We'll try to explain that formula, and, if time permits, sketch the main steps of the proof.
