A co-publication of the AMS and International Press of Boston, Inc.

This book presents contributions of participants of a
workshop held at the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM),
University of Montréal. It can be viewed as a sequel to Mirror Symmetry
I (1998),
Mirror Symmetry II (1996), and Mirror Symmetry III
(1999), copublished by the AMS and International Press.

The volume presents a broad survey of many of the noteworthy
developments that have taken place in string theory, geometry, and
duality since the mid 1990s. Some of the topics emphasized include the
following: Integrable models and supersymmetric gauge theories; theory
of M- and D-branes and noncommutative geometry; duality between strings
and gauge theories; and elliptic genera and automorphic forms.
Several introductory articles present an overview of the geometric and
physical aspects of mirror symmetry and of corresponding developments in
symplectic geometry. The book provides an efficient way for a very
broad audience of mathematicians and physicists to explore the frontiers
of research into this rapidly expanding area.

Titles in this series are co-published with International Press of Boston, Inc., Cambridge, MA.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematical areas such as geometry and modular forms.
