On $p$-integrality of instanton numbers

  title={On \$p\$-integrality of instanton numbers},
  author={Frits Beukers and Masha Vlasenko},
The motivation for this paper comes from the striking work [7] of Candelas, de la Ossa, Green and Parkes in the study of mirror symmetry of quintic threefolds from 1991. The story has been told many times, so we will give only a very brief description. For more details we like to refer to Duco van Straten’s excellent [18] and the many references therein. Our short story starts with the differential operator L = θ − 5t(5θ + 1)(5θ + 2)(5θ + 3)(5θ + 4), where θ denotes t d dt . The unique… Expand


Ordinary Calabi-Yau-3 Crystals
We show that crystals with the properties of crystalline cohomology of ordinary Calabi-Yau threefolds in characteristic p > 0, exhibit a remarkable similarity with the well known structure on the Expand
Integrality of instanton numbers and p-adic B-model
Abstract We study integrality of instanton numbers (genus zero Gopakumar–Vafa invariants) for quintic and other Calabi–Yau manifolds. We start with the analysis of the case when the moduli space ofExpand
Enumerative Geometry of Calabi-Yau 4-Folds
Gromov-Witten theory is used to define an enumerative geometry of curves in Calabi-Yau 4-folds. The main technique is to find exact solutions to moving multiple cover integrals. The resultingExpand
An exactly soluble superconformal theory from a mirror pair of Calabi-Yau manifolds☆
Abstract We compute the prepotentials and the geometry of the moduli spaces for a Calabi-Yau manifold and its mirror. In this way we obtain all the sigma model corrections to the Yukawa couplings andExpand
Homological Geometry and Mirror Symmetry
A homogeneous polynomial equation in five variables determines a quintic 3-fp;d in ℂP4. Hodge numbers of a nonsingular quintic are know to be: h p, p = 1, p = 0, 1, 2, 3 (Kahler form and its powers),Expand
On Dwork's p-adic formal congruences theorem and hypergeometric mirror maps
Using Dwork's theory, we prove a broad generalisation of his famous p-adic formal congruences theorem. This enables us to prove certain p-adic congruences for the generalized hypergeometric seriesExpand
Dwork crystals III
We recall the main points of our earlier papers [2] and [3] titled Dwork crystals I and II. In this paper we shall refer to them as Part I and Part II. Let p be an odd prime and R a p-adic ring. ByExpand
The Gopakumar-Vafa formula for symplectic manifolds
The Gopakumar-Vafa conjecture predicts that the Gromov-Witten invariants of a Calabi-Yau 3-fold can be canonically expressed in terms of integer invariants called BPS numbers. Using the methods ofExpand
On generalized hypergeometric equations and mirror maps
This paper deals with generalized hypergeometric differential equations of order n ≥ 3 having maximal unipotent monodromy at 0. We show that among these equations those leading to mirror maps withExpand
On the integrality of the Taylor coefficients of mirror maps
We show that the Taylor coefficients of the series ${\bf q}(z)=z\exp({\bf G}(z)/{\bf F}(z))$ are integers, where ${\bf F}(z)$ and ${\bf G}(z)+\log(z) {\bf F}(z)$ are specific solutions of certainExpand
