University of Sydney Algebra Seminar

David Baraglia (Australian National University)

Friday 10th September, 12.05-12.55pm, Carslaw 175

Mirror symmetry SYZ and special Lagrangians

I will give an introductory talk on Mirror symmetry from the point of view of the Strominger Yau Zaslow conjecture. The conjecture claims that mirror Calabi-Yau manifolds are special Lagrangian fibrations over the same base but with fibres related through T-duality.

The talk will cover basic material about Calabi-Yau manifolds, special Lagrangian submanifolds and their deformation theory.
