D-Brane Probes and Mirror Symmetry

  title={D-Brane Probes and Mirror Symmetry},
  author={Cesar Gomez}
We study the effect of mirror symmetry for K3 surfaces on D-brane probe physics. The case of elliptically fibered K3 surfaces is considered in detail. In many cases, mirror can transform a singular fiber of Kodaira's type ADE into sets of singular fibers of type I 1 (II) with equal total Euler number, but vanishing contribution to the Picard number of the… CONTINUE READING
