# Quiver theories from D6 branes via mirror symmetry

@article{Hanany2001QuiverTF, title={Quiver theories from D6 branes via mirror symmetry}, author={Amihay Hanany and Amer Iqbal}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2001}, volume={2002}, pages={009-009} }

We study = 1 four dimensional quiver theories arising on the worldvolume of D3-branes at del Pezzo singularities of Calabi-Yau threefolds. We argue that under local mirror symmetry D3-branes become D6-branes wrapped on a three torus in the mirror manifold. The type-IIB (p,q) 5-brane web description of the local del Pezzo, being closely related to the geometry of its mirror manifold, encodes the geometry of 3-cycles and is used to obtain gauge groups, quiver diagrams and the charges of the…
