Mirror Symmetries for Brane Configurations and Branes at Singularities

  title={Mirror Symmetries for Brane Configurations and Branes at Singularities},
  author={Mina Aganagic and Andreas Karch},
We study local mirror symmetry on non-compact Calabi-Yau manifolds (conifold type of singularities) in the presence of D3 brane probes. Using an intermediate brane setup of NS 5-branes ‘probed’ by D4 resp. D5 branes, we can explicitly T-dualize three isometry directions to relate a non-compact Calabi-Yau manifold to its local mirror. The intermediate brane setup is the one that is best suited to read off the gauge theory on the probe. Both intervals and boxes of NS 5-branes appear as brane… CONTINUE READING
