# Questions tagged [calabi-yau]

Calabi-Yau manifolds are higher dimensional generalizations of elliptic curves and K3 surfaces. They can be defined as the compact complex Kähler manifolds with trivial canonical bundle, and play a central role in mirror symmetry. This tag can also be used for Calabi-Yau algebras and categories. These algebraic notions are inspired by the properties of the derived categories of coherent sheaves on Calabi-Yau manifolds.
