Orientifolds and Mirror Symmetry

  title={Orientifolds and Mirror Symmetry},
  author={Ilka Brunner and Kentaro Hori},
We study parity symmetries and crosscap states in classes of N = 2 su-persymmetric quantum field theories in 1 + 1 dimensions, including non-linear sigma models, gauged WZW models, Landau-Ginzburg models, and linear sigma models. The parity anomaly and its cancellation play important roles in many of them. The case of the N = 2 minimal model are studied in complete detail, from all three realizations — gauged WZW model, abstract RCFT, and LG models. We also identify mirror pairs of orientifolds… CONTINUE READING
