Title: SYZ mirror symmetry for toric Calabi-Yau manifolds
Date: Fri, Aug 05, 2011, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Balcony A
Abstract: Mirror symmetry is a duality between symplectic geometry and complex geometry. Strominger-Yau-Zaslow proposed to understand mirror symmetry via T-duality. In this talk I will explain how to carry out their proposal for toric Calabi-Yau manifolds. In particular it involves quantum corrections by open Gromov-Witten invariants.
