Mirror Symmetry and Algebraic Geometry (Mathematical Surveys & Monographs) - David A. Cox (1999)
ISBN 9780821821275
Publisher Amer Mathematical Society
Publication Date September 1999
Format Paperback (257 x 175 mm)
Mirror symmetry began when theoretical physicists made some astonishing predictions about rational curves on quintic hypersurfaces in four-dimensional projective space. Understanding the mathematics behind these predictions has been a substantial challenge. This book is the first completely comprehensive monograph on mirror symmetry, covering the original observations by the physicists through the most recent progress made to date. Subjects discussed include toric varieties, Hodge theory, Kähler geometry, moduli of stable maps, Calabi-Yau manifolds, quantum cohomology, Gromov-Witten invariants, and the mirror theorem.
