Item description for Calabi-Yau Manifolds and Related Geometries by Mark W. Gross, Daniel Huybrechts & Dominic Joyce...
This book is an expanded version of lectures given at a summer school on symplectic geometry in Nordfjordeid, Norway, in June 2001. The unifying feature of the book is an emphasis on Calabi-Yau manifolds. The first part discusses holonomy groups and calibrated submanifolds, focusing on special Lagrangian submanifolds and the SYZ conjecture. The second studies Calabi-Yau manifolds and mirror symmetry, using algebraic geometry. The final part describes compact hyperkahler manifolds, which have a geometric structure very closely related to Calabi-Yau manifolds. The book is an introduction to a very active field of research, on the boundary between mathematics and physics. It is aimed at graduate students and researchers in geometry and string theory and intended as an introductory text, requiring only limited background knowledge. Proofs or sketches are given for many important results. Moreover, exercises are provided.
