Mirror symmetry for toric Calabi-Yau manifolds from the SYZ viewpoint (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, I will discuss mirror symmetry for toric
Calabi-Yau (CY) manifolds from the viewpoint of the SYZ program. I will
start with a special Lagrangian torus fibration on a toric CY manifold,
and then construct its instanton-corrected mirror by a T-duality modified
by quantum corrections. A remarkable feature of this construction is that
the mirror family is inherently written in canonical flat coordinates. As
a consequence, we get a conjectural enumerative meaning for the inverse
mirror maps. If time permits, I will explain the verification of this
conjecture in several examples via a formula which computes open
Gromov-Witten invariants for toric manifolds.
