Periods and duality symmetries in Calabi-Yau compactifications. (English) Zbl 1360.32009
Summary: We derive the period structure of several one-modulus Calabi-Yau manifolds. With this knowledge we then obtain the generators of the duality group and the mirror map that defines the physical variable \(t\) representing the radius of compactification. We also describe the fundamental region of \(t\) and discuss its relation with automorphic functions. As a byproduct of our analysis we compute the non-perturbative corrections of Yukawa couplings.
