Title: Counting rational curves in P^2 using Kontsevich's formula

Abstract: The numbers N_d of rational plane curves has for a long time only been known for small d. In 1990, Kontsevich came up with a recursive formula. In this talk, we will give some basic ideas and an example how Kontsevich's formula can be derived.
