PhD Seminar — Winter Term 2019

This is the the website of the seminar of the PhD students of the Mathematics Department, research areas Algebra and Number Theory, Analysis and Differential Geometry and the RTG1670 of the University of Hamburg. If you want to subscribe to the mailing list please go to the mailing list's website.

This semester's topic is: Mirror symmetry and the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture

After last semester's seminar about Electromagnetic Duality, we now turn to the geometry underlying mirror symmetry. The Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture predicts that mirror dual Calabi-Yau manifolds admit dual special Lagrangian torus fibrations. In the seminar we will learn what this means and how one can construct the mirror using the Gross-Siebert program, an algebro-geometric version of the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture.

The seminar will take place on Thursdays, 12:00 - 13:00 in room 1643 (Geomatikum).

We plan to stick rather closely to a paper by Mark Gross:

[1] Mirror symmetry and the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture

The following references might also be useful in preparing the talks:
