Algebraic Geometry: "Mirror Transitions And The Batyrev-Borisov Construction"

Thursday, Feb 21, 2013 1:10p to 2:00p
UC Riverside Fine Arts Riverside, CA

The idea of a "transition" between two nonsingular Calabi-Yau threefolds $X$ and $Y$ involves degenerating $X$ to a singular variety $X0$, then obtaining $Y$ as a resolution of singularities of $X0$. David Morrison conjectured that if $X$ and $Y$ are Calabi-Yau threefolds related by a transition and $X^$ and $Y^$ are their mirrors, then $X^$ and $Y^$ are also related by a transition, but with the degeneration and resolution switched. In this talk I will discuss some examples that show how the idea… Show more
