Its overall goal is to explore the physical and mathematical aspects of Dirichlet branes. Context Duality duality abstract duality: Request a correction Enlighten Editors: Publication Month and Year: The group of distinguished mathematicians and mathematical physicists who produced this monograph worked as a team to create a unique volume.

Mirror symmetry is related to the T-duality on each fiber of an associated Lagrangian fibration Strominger-Yau-Zaslow The relation to T-duality was established in.

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:. Instead, theirs is a unified presentation offered in a way that both mathematicians and physicists can follow, without having all of the foundations of both subjects at their immediate disposal.

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. Surveys 59no. Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical aspects of quantum field theory, in particular string theory and mirror symmetry. The authors explain how Kontsevich’s conjecture is equivalent to the identification of two different categories of Dirichlet branes.

The mirror symmetry conjecture roughly claims that every Calabi-Yau 3-fold has a mirror. The physical existence conditions for branes are then discussed and compared in the context of mirror symmetry, culminating in Bridgeland’s definition of stability structures, and its applications to the McKay correspondence and quantum geometry.

At least in some cases this can be understood as a special case of T-duality Strominger-Yau-Zaslow 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.

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. They relate the ideas to active diichlet of research that include the McKay correspondence, topological quantum field theory, and stability structures.

This is called mirror symmetry.

D1-braneD3-braneD5-brane. 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 diridhlet conditions on triangulated categories, and a physical basis for the McKay correspondence.
