We demonstrate that for a broad class of local Calabi-Yau geometries built around a string of P1’s – those whose toric diagrams are given by triangulations of a strip – we can derive simple rules, based on the topological vertex, for obtaining expressions for the topological string partition function in which the sums over Young tableaux have been performed. By allowing non-trivial tableaux on the external legs of the corresponding web diagrams, these strips can be used as building blocks for… CONTINUE READING
