Heterotic mirror symmetry Sharpe, Eric


In this talk we will describe progress towards a generalization of mirror symmetry pertinent for heterotic strings. Whereas ordinary mirror symmetry relates, in its simplest incarnations, pairs of Calabi-Yau manifolds, the heterotic generalization relates pairs of holomorphic vector bundles over (typically distinct) Calabi-Yau's, satisfying certain consistency conditions. We will also outline the corresponding analogue of quantum cohomology, known as quantum sheaf cohomology, describing results for deformations of tangent bundles of toric varieties and Grassmannians, and we will discuss (0,2) Landau-Ginzburg Toda-like mirrors to deformations of tangent bundles of products of projective spaces.
