In 1991, Candelas, de la Ossa, Green, and Parkes calculated the instanton predictions for the quintic threefold and this started an exciting new endeavor by the name of mirror symmetry. Later, physical arguments gave rise to a more geometric picture of mirror symmetry, known as the SYZ conjecture. In this talk we shall explore this conjecture, and learn about the general strategy of the Gross-Siebert program and how it is motivated. Time-permitting we’ll then see how tropical geometry naturally comes into the picture, and how nice it is to play with tropical curves.

This talk is part of the A-side seminar series.
