Mirror Symmetry is T-Duality

  title={Mirror Symmetry is T-Duality},
  author={Andrew Strominger and Shing-Tung Yau and Eric Zaslow},
It is argued that every Calabi-Yau manifold X with a mirror Y admits a family of supersymmetric toroidal 3-cycles. Moreover the moduli space of such cycles together with their flat connections is precisely the space Y . The mirror transformation is equivalent to T-duality on the 3-cycles. The geometry of moduli space is addressed in a general framework. Several examples are discussed. † email: andy@denali.physics.ucsb.edu †† email: yau@abel.math.harvard.edu ††† email: zaslow@abel.math.harvard… CONTINUE READING
