If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mike Gunn. Mirror symmetry is a mathematical discipline that got its start from physics. T-duality, a duality from string theory, is a way to equate IIA string theory modelled on a specific Calabi-Yau 3-manifold to a IIB theory modelled on a different Calabi-Yau 3-manifold, known as the mirror manifold. This duality has been discussed in mathematics for the last almost 30 years and has had deep and wide-reaching connections. I will provide a survey on the geometric interpretation of this duality and what the current questions are in the mathematical community.
