Title

Construction of the Landau-Ginzburg Model

Abstract

From String Theory, we are introduced to the idea of Mirror Symmetry, which predicts an isomorphism between the structures of the A-Model and the structures of B-Model. As mentioned in the previous talk, the B-Model comes equipped with a state space and a product. The product structure on the B-Model was not known mathematically until recently. Within the last few years, two groups of mathematicians have proposed different product structures. In this talk, we will briefly review the construction of the state space and we will describe the second product structure. Finally, we will discuss the relationship with the product described in the previous talk.
