Mirror Symmetry workshop

Conference Date: 
Friday, November 19, 2004 (All day) to Tuesday, November 23, 2004 (All day)

 

This meeting will be an international gathering of leading researchers to discuss the latest developments in our understanding of "mirror symmetry", a surprising relation that can exist between two Calabi-Yau manifolds. It happens that two such geometries may look very different, but are nevertheless equivalent when employed as hidden dimensions in string theory. Mirror symmetry has become a very powerful tool in both physics and mathematics.
