One difficulty in understanding all aspects of this work is that it requires being able to speak two different languages, the language of string theory and the language of algebraic geometry.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. The physical existence conditions for branes are then discussed and compared in the context of mirror symmefry, culminating in Bridgeland’s definition of stability structures, and its applications to the McKay correspondence and quantum geometry.

The narrative is organized around two principal ideas: In terms of these the statement of mirror symmetry says that passing to mirror CYs exchanges the A-model with the B B -model and conversely:.


Dirichlet Branes and Mirror Symmetry.

This categorical formulation was introduced by Maxim Kontsevich in under the name homological mirror symmetry. 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 digichlet basis for the McKay correspondence.

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. Research in string theory over the last several decades has yielded a rich interaction with algebraic geometry. They relate the ideas to active areas of research that include the McKay correspondence, topological dirichllet field theory, symmetrry stability structures. As foreseen by Kontsevich, these turned out to have mathematical counterparts in the derived category of coherent sheaves on an algebraic variety and the Fukaya category of a symplectic manifold.

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.

Although the non-Calabi-Yau case may be of lesser interest to physics, one can still formulate some mirror symmetry statements for, for instance, Fano manifolds.

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. The Clay School on Geometry and String Theory set out to bridge this gap, and this monograph builds on the expository lectures given there to provide an up-to-date discussion including subsequent developments.
