This quantity offers a full of life advent to the quickly constructing and huge study parts surrounding Calabi–Yau forms and string concept. With its assurance of some of the views of a large zone of themes equivalent to Hodge thought, Gross–Siebert application, moduli difficulties, toric strategy, and mathematics points, the booklet offers a entire assessment of the present streams of mathematical study within the area.

The contributions during this publication are according to lectures that happened in the course of workshops with the next thematic titles: “Modular types round String Theory,” “Enumerative Geometry and Calabi–Yau Varieties,” “Physics round replicate Symmetry,” “Hodge idea in String Theory.” The ebook is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers studying approximately Calabi–Yau types in addition to physics scholars and string theorists who desire to research the math at the back of those varieties.

The mirror to a weighted Fermat variety would be found by quotienting out by certain symmetries, and then taking a crepant resolution. In 1992, Berglund and Hübsch proposed a generalization that included any weighted Delsarte Calabi-Yau hypersurface in a weighted projective space [2]. This proposal went unfortunately under-investigated until the last few years where it was generalized by Krawitz in [13]. A generalization to weighted Delsarte K3 surfaces are K3 surfaces of BHK type, that is, K3 surfaces that have a Berglund-HübschKrawitz mirror.

Further information about the moduli space of polarized K3 surfaces and its compactifications (especially the Baily-Borel compactification) may also be found in the book by Scattone [59]. An excellent overview of the theory of degenerations may be found in the survey paper by Friedman and Morrison [20]. The best reference for the theory of lattice polarized K3 surfaces and their moduli is still probably Dolgachev’s original paper [14]. For more information on the theory of elliptic surfaces, Miranda’s book [42] is an excellent reference.
