This volume is an updated edition of Essays on Mirror Manifolds, the first book of papers published after the phenomenon of mirror symmetry was discovered. The two major groups who made the discovery reported their papers here.
Greene, Plesser, and Candelas gave details on their findings; Witten gave his interpretation which was vital for future development. Vafa introduced the concept of quantum cohomology. Several mathematicians, including Katz, Morrison, Wilson, Roan, Tian, Hübsch, Yau, and Borcea discussed current knowledge about Calabi-Yau manifolds. Ferrara and his coauthors addressed special geometry and \(N=2\) supergravity. Roček proposed possible mirrors for Calabi-Yau manifolds with torsion. This collection continues to be an important book on this spectacular achievement in algebraic geometry and mathematical physics.
Titles in this series are co-published with International Press, Cambridge, MA.
Graduate students, research mathematicians and mathematical physicists working in algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, and number theory.
From a review of the first edition ...
"This volume is very timely, giving very broad coverage of one of the important developments in mathematics and physics today ... This volume is a requisite for those working in the area of CY \(3\)-folds, as well as those interested in mathematical implications of contemporary physics."
