### Algebra Seminar

# Mirror symmetry SYZ and special Lagrangians

### David Baraglia

#### Friday September 10, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

###### Abstract

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.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.
