Extending mirror conjecture to Calabi-Yau with bundles. (English) Zbl 0986.14500
The author extends the usual understanding of mirror symmetry to the case of Calabi-Yau base manifolds with a stable bundle as additional data. The corresponding mirror objects are supersymmetric cycles on the mirror manifold. For a Calabi-Yau \(n\)-fold \(N\) copies of \(D\)-branes wrapped over it will yield a \(U(N)\)-bundle which will be stable by the required supersymmetry. The motivation originates from type II string theory. It should be expected that the deformation of the bundle corresponds to the deformation of the supersymmetric cycle inside the mirror. This relation is studied for Calabi-Yau threefolds (e.g. for Chern-Simons theory) in more detail.
