Special Issue "Mirror Symmetry and Algebraic Geometry"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
Interests: commutative algebra and algebraic geometry
The Galois group of a polynomial f with integral coefficients is a measure of the symmetry of the complex roots of f and the solvability of the equation f = 0 by radicals, it is just a question of the symmetry of the roots of f.
The mirror symmetry leads the physicists to do important predictions about the rational curves on the quintic threefold, which were partially proved very late by people from Algebraic Geometry. The prediction about Gromov–Witten invariants given by the mirror symmetry is now proved mathematically in several cases. Many new fields and concepts in Algebraic Geometry appeared when people tried to give a mathematical foundation for aspects of the mirror symmetry, for example, quantum cohomology, the complexified Kahler moduli space of a Calabi–Yau threefold, Kontsevich's definition of a stable map, and Batyrev's duality between certain toric varieties and Givental's notion of Quantum Differential Equations.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
