What is the meaning of $(h^{11},h^{21})\to (h^{11}-240,h^{21}+240)$ in Calabi-Yau threefolds?

By browsing through the Hodge data of known Calabi-Yau threefolds, I stumbled upon an observation that frequently enough a pair of Hodge numbers $(h^{11},h^{21})$ comes together with the pair $ ...

Mirror symmetry for polarized abelian surfaces and Shioda-Inose K3s

It is well known (cf. Dolgachev) that there is a beautiful notion of mirror symmetry for lattice-polarized K3 surfaces. That is, if we are given a rank $r$ lattice $M$ of signature $(1, r - 1)$ and a ...

A question on the topological change of dualizing a SLAG fibration.

Let $S$ be a K3 surface and $\pi:S\rightarrow B$ be a SLAG $T^2$-fibration. I am struggling with a statement that Fiberwise dualization does not change the topology of $S$. Here by fiberwise ...
