### complexified kahler form

In mirror symmetry one usually considers a complexified kahler form $B+iw$ instead of kahler form $w$ itself.(Or their moduli)
Here is the question:
What does $B$ correspond to? what kind of ...

### balanced curves in Calabi-Yau 3-folds

A balanced smooth rational curve in a calabi-Yau X is a smooth rational curve whose normal bundle is $O(-1)\oplus O(-1)$.
We usually like these curves because of their rigidity.
But, Is there any ...

### Shrinking Fano surfaces to a point in Calabi-Yau 3-folds

Let X be a Calabi-Yau 3-fold, and $D\subset X$, smooth,Fano divisor.
Since $K_X=0$ we have $N_D^X=K_D$. I have seen the following fact in many papers:
By deforming X within Kahler moduli, we can ...

### About topological B model

I was heard (by an expert) that, in mirror symmetry, we have constructed a Quantum Master Equation associated to topological B model, and a solution to it. But I can't find any material about this. Is ...

### “Fourier-Mukai” functors for Fukaya categories?

I just skimmed a bit of this fresh-off-the-press paper on homological mirror symmetry for general type varieties.
One thing that intrigued me was statement (ii) of Conjecture 3.3. It suggests that, ...

### Mirror of local Calabi-Yau

What is the mirror manifold of the total space of the bundle $O(-1)\oplus O(-1)$ over $P^1$? I have tried to find the answer on the web but failed. Is there a good reference for this? Thanks.

### Mirror symmetry mod p?! … Physics mod p?!

In his answer to this question, Scott Carnahan mentions "mirror symmetry mod p". What is that?
(Some kind of) Gromov-Witten invariants can be defined for varieties over fields other than ...

### Higher genus closed string B-model

The closed string A-model is mathematically described by Gromov-Witten invariants of a compact symplectic manifold $X$. The genus 0 GW invariants give the structure of quantum cohomology of $X$, which ...

### Is the Fukaya category “defined”?

Sometimes people say that the Fukaya category is "not yet defined" in general.
What is meant by such a statement? (If it simplifies things, let's just stick with Fukaya categories of compact ...

### Mirror symmetry for noncompact Calabi-Yau manifolds

In analogy with the Hodge diagram for ordinary de Rham cohomology, we should have some kind of diagram for Alexander-Spanier cohomology. Doing all the relevant duality stuff and assuming that now our ...
