Abstract: Motivated by physics of the Standard Model and Grand Unification Theories, we are interested in geometry of minuscule homogeneous spaces. In this talk, we will be concentrated on mirror symmetric aspects of minuscule varieties. For this we consider a toric degeneration of a minuscule variety and consider its combinatorial relation to minuscule descent. This allows us to describe Landau-Ginzburg potential and find solution for the Quantum Differential Equation. This is a joint work with Sergey Galkin.
