2023 Simons Math Summer Workshop: Lecture Topics

WEEK 1: THE SYZ CONJECTURE AND COLLAPSING CALABI-YAU MANIFOLDS The Strominger-Yau-Zaslow (SYZ) conjecture dates from 1996. It was proposed as a geometric mechanism underlying mirror symmetry for Calabi-Yau manifolds. The proposal is that, at least near the “large complex structure” limit in moduli space, a Calabi-Yau manifold has a fibration whose generic fibers are Special … Read more
