Abstract: 

Motivic integration was introduced by Kontsevich in his lecture at Orsay in 1995 in order to prove Batyrev’s conjecture, stating that two birationally equivalent Calabi-Yau manifolds have the same Hodge numbers. We will give an introduction to this integration theory and sketch Kontsevich’s proof.
