A co-publication of the AMS and Clay Mathematics Institute

This thorough and detailed exposition is the result of an intensive
month-long course sponsored by the Clay Mathematics Institute. It
develops mirror symmetry from both mathematical and physical
perspectives. The material will be particularly useful for those wishing
to advance their understanding by exploring mirror symmetry at the
interface of mathematics and physics.

This one-of-a-kind volume offers the first comprehensive exposition on
this increasingly active area of study. It is carefully written by
leading experts who explain the main concepts without assuming too much
prerequisite knowledge. The book is an excellent resource for graduate
students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical and
theoretical physics.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Clay Mathematics Institute (Cambridge, MA).

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematics and mathematical and theoretical physics.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

This book, a product of the collective efforts of the lecturers at the School organized … by the Clay Mathematics Institute, is a valuable contribution to the continuing intensive collaboration of physicists and mathematicians. It will be of great value to young and mature researchers in both communities interested in this fascinating modern grand unification project.
