Pure Maths Colloquium: Topological Mirror Symmetry

Presented by "Mark Gross (University of Warwick, Coventry)",

22 April 2002 00:00 in CM221

" Mirror symmetry is a strange correspondence between topologically distinct Calabi-Yau manifolds first observed
by string theorists around 1990, and which has generated a great deal of interest since then because of unusual
numerical predictions. I will describe recent work explaining how the relationship between mirror pairs of
Calabi-Yau manifolds can be explained at the topological level by dualizing torus fibrations."
