This book presents surveys from a workshop held during the theme year in geometry and topology at the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM, University of Montréal). The volume is in some sense a sequel to Mirror Symmetry I (1998) and Mirror Symmetry II (1996), copublished by the AMS and International Press.
Included are recent developments in the theory of mirror manifolds and the related areas of complex and symplectic geometry. The long introductory articles explain the key physical ideas and motivation, namely conformal field theory, supersymmetry, and string theory. Open problems are emphasized. Thus the book provides an efficient way for a very broad audience of mathematicians and physicists to reach the frontier of research in this fast expanding area.
Also available from the AMS is the related volume, Mirror Symmetry IV (2002).
Titles in this series are co-published with International Press, Cambridge, MA.
Graduate students, research mathematicians and physicists working in mathematics and theoretical physics, especially in algebraic or complex geometry or conformal field theory.
