      This animation depicts two versions of the three dimensional projections of six dimensional Calabi-Yau Manifolds morphing into each other. These types of Manifolds are utilized to .   First, a general definition of a Calabi-Yau manifold from the Wikipedia article: > A Calabi–Yau manifold, also known as a Calabi–Yau space, is a special type of manifold that is described in certain branches of mathematics such as algebraic geome.

    There are several different "definitions" of Calabi-Yau manifolds, not all equivalent, and not all contained in one general definition. A good discussion of some of these inequivalent definitions can be found in Joyce's book: Compact Manifolds with Special Holonomy.   Besides giving a clean classification of Riemann surfaces, its proof has motivated many new methods, such as the Riemann–Hilbert correspondence, Picard–Fuchs equations, and higher-dimensional generalizations of the uniformization theorem, which include Calabi–Yau manifolds.

      The general assumption in the theory is that Calabi-Yau manifolds are smooth— i.e., elementary objects. The example often quoted by advocates of the theory is that of a pipe, which when viewed from a distance, it appears as a one-dimensional object— i.e. a line, but when viewed closely it reveals a curved surface encapsulating a three.   This was indeed the procedure pursued by the string theorists P. Candelas, Gary T. Horowitz, Andrew Strominger and Edward Witten for Heterotic Supergravity (slightly corrected by String Theory effects) in the seminal paper 2 of , where Calabi-Yau manifolds were introduced for the first time in the context of String Theory by using its.

The main goal of this book is the construction of families of Calabi-Yau 3-manifolds with dense sets of complex multiplication fibers. The new families are determined Cited by: I would like to strongly recommend the book to anybody interested in the topic." (EMS, September, ) "This book is an excellent introduction to current research in the geometry of Calabi-Yau manifolds, hyper-Kähler manifolds, exceptional holonomy and mirror symmetry.

the choice of topics is a Cited by: I would also add the following book: Dominic Joyce, Compact Manifolds with Special Holonomy. The early parts of the book include an introduction to the Riemannian geometry of Calabi-Yau manifolds.

It also includes a proof of the Calabi conjecture. When Calabi-Yau manifolds were first discovered, it was hoped by some vocal members of the string theory community that one specific manifold would fall out as the right one.

This hasn’t proved to be the case, and this is what many string theorists Calabi Yau Manifolds book have expected in the first place — that the specific Calabi-Yau manifold is a quantity. Calabi-Yau spaces are complex spaces with a vanishing first Chern class, or equivalently, with trivial canonical bundle (canonical class).

They are used to construct possibly realistic (super)string models and are thus being studied vigorously in the recent physics the main part of the Book, collected and reviewed are relevant results on (1) several major techniques of.

Product Information. This book presents, in a unifying perspective, the topics related to N=2 supersymmetry in two dimensions. Beginning with the K hler structure of D=4 supergravity Lagrangians, through the analysis of string compactifications on Calabi-Yau manifolds, one reaches the heart of the matter with the chiral ring structure of N=2 conformal field theories and its relation to.

In mathematics, the Calabi conjecture was a conjecture about the existence of certain "nice" Riemannian metrics on certain complex manifolds, made by Eugenio Calabi (, ) and proved by Shing-Tung Yau (, ).Yau received the Fields Medal in in part for this proof.

The Calabi conjecture states that a compact Kähler manifold has a unique Kähler metric in the same class whose. Why This Book: It is therefore evident that a new book on Calabi-Yau manifolds, and more widely, on algebraic geometry, is very much in demand.

Such a book should emphasize that the subject is not only at the intersection between mathematics and physics, but resides, in fact, at the cusp of pure. A finiteness theorem for polarized manifolds (with Y.

THE SHAPE OF INNER SPACE is guaranteed to take readers places they've never been before, nor thought about before. That was certainly the case for me.

This animation shows a Calabi-Yau surface which is a projection of these higher dimensions into the more familiar dimensions we are aware of. Brian Greene's book, The Elegant Universe, was made into a documentary and has a chapter that does a good job of explaining this concept.
