Abstract: Certain quantum spectral problems have the remarkable property that the formal perturbative series for the energy spectrum can be used to generate all other terms in the entire trans-series, in a completely constructive manner. I explain a geometric all-orders WKB approach to these perturbative/non-perturbative relations, which also reveals surprising connections to number theory and modular forms.
