Mirror Symmetry
• Space translation. If I have some apparatus, and move it to a different place it will work the same. The laws governing its behavior are the same under space translation. • Time translation. The
The String landscape, black holes and gravity as the weakest force
We conjecture a general upper bound on the strength of gravity relative to gauge forces in quantum gravity. This implies, in particular, that in a four-dimensional theory with gravity and a U(1)
M theory and topological strings. 2.
The $R^2 F^{2g-2}$ terms of Type IIA strings on Calabi-Yau 3-folds, which are given by the corresponding topological string amplitudes (a worldsheet instanton sum for all genera), are shown to have a
D-Branes And Mirror Symmetry
We study (2,2) supersymmetric field theories on two-dimensional worldsheet with boundaries. We determine D-branes (boundary conditions and boundary interactions) that preserve half of the bulk
The Topological Vertex
We construct a cubic field theory which provides all genus amplitudes of the topological A-model for all non-compact toric Calabi-Yau threefolds. The topology of a given Feynman diagram encodes the
Mirror symmetry, D-branes and counting holomorphic discs
We consider a class of special Lagrangian subspaces of Calabi-Yau manifolds and identify their mirrors, using the recent derivation of mirror symmetry, as certain holomorphic varieties of the mirror
