Title: The SYZ picture of mirror symmetry
Date (JST): Fri, Feb 04, 2011, 14:00 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: In the first part, I will start with a brief introduction to mirror symmetry and the SYZ conjecture. Then I will describe how mirror symmetry works according to the SYZ picture when there are no quantum corrections. In the second part, I will discuss the SYZ program for cases with quantum corrections. I will focus mainly on two classes of examples: compact toric manifolds and toric Calabi-Yau manifolds. At the end of the talk, I will comment on some future research directions.
Remarks: Break at 15:00-15:30
