OrlovMirror symmetry for Del Pezzo surfaces: Although the non-Calabi-Yau case symmetryy be of lesser interest to physics, one can still formulate some mirror symmetry statements for, for instance, Fano manifolds. These developments have led to a great deal of new mathematical work.

The book continues with detailed treatments of the Strominger—Yau—Zaslow conjecture, Calabi—Yau metrics and homological mirror symmetry, and discusses more recent physical developments. By using our website you agree to our use of cookies.

A natural sequel to the first Clay monograph on Nirror Symmetry, it presents the new ideas coming out of the interactions of string theory and algebraic geometry in a coherent logical context.

Its overall goal is to explore the physical and mathematical aspects of Dirichlet branes. This book is suitable for graduate students and researchers with either a physics or mathematics background, who are interested in the interface between string theory and algebraic geometry.

Algebraic Geometry, to appear, arXiv: After showing how notions of branes arose in string theory, it turns to an introduction to abd algebraic geometry, sheaf theory, and homological algebra needed to define and work with derived categories. This monograph builds on lectures at the Clay School on Geometry and String Theory that sought to bridge the gap between the languages of string theory and algebraic geometry, presenting an updated discussion that includes subsequent developments.

This site is running on Instiki 0. Inthe introduction of Calabi—Yau manifolds into physics as a way to compactify ten-dimensional space-time has led to exciting cross-fertilization between physics and mathematics, especially with the discovery of mirror diricchlet in This has led to exciting new work, including the Strominger—Yau—Zaslow conjecture, which used the theory of branes to propose a geometric basis for mirror symmetry, the theory of stability conditions on triangulated categories, and a physical basis for the McKay correspondence.


Book ratings by Goodreads. Dirichlet Branes and Mirror Symmetry. The narrative is organized around two principal ideas: The topological A-model can be expressed in terms of symplectic geometry of a variety and the topological B-model can be expressed in terms of the algebraic geometry of a variety.

They also explore the ramifications and current state of the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture.

Nauk 59no. Last revised on April 11, at The book first introduces the notion of Dirichlet brane in the context of topological quantum field theories, and then reviews the basics of string theory.
