Calabi-Yau Manifolds and Related Geometries

This ebook is an multiplied model of lectures given at a summer season tuition on symplectic geometry in Nordfjordeid, Norway, in June 2001. The unifying function of the publication is an emphasis on Calabi-Yau manifolds. the 1st half discusses holonomy teams and calibrated submanifolds, concentrating on distinctive Lagrangian submanifolds and the SYZ conjecture.

A) To say that the linear dfpo is bijective means that rank(dfpo ) = dim M = dim N (b) The theorem implies that one can find coordinate systems around po and f (po ) so that on the coordinate domain f : M → N becomes the identity map Rn → Rn . The Inverse Function Theorem has two important corollaries which we list themselves as theorems. 12 Immersion Theorem. Let f : M → N be a smooth map of manifolds, n = dim M, m = dim N . Suppose po is a point of M at which the differential dfpo : Tpo M → Tf (po ) N is injective.

In the corresponding linear coordinates (dx1 , · · · , dxn ) on Tp M and (dt1 , · · · , dtm ) on Tp S its differential is given by dx1 = dt1 , · · · , dxm = dtm , dxm+1 = 0, · · · , dxn = 0. This implies the assertion. This lemma may be generalized: . 3 Theorem. Let M be a manifold, f 1 , · · · , f k smooth functions on M . Let S be the set of points p ∈ M satisfying f 1 (p) = 0, · · · , f k (p) = 0. Suppose the differentials df 1 , · · · , df k are linearly independent at every point of S. (a)S is a submanifold of M of dimension m = n − k and its tangent space at p ∈ S is the subspace of vectors v ∈ Tp M satisfying the linear equations (df 1 )p (v) = 0, · · · , (df k )p (v) = 0.

Example. a)Take for f : M → N the radial projection map π : R3 − {0} → S 2 , p → p/ p . If we use the spherical coordinates (θ, φ, ρ) on R3 − {0} and (θ, φ) on S 2 then π becomes the standard projection map (θ, φ, ρ) → (θ, φ) on the coordinate domains . 3. VECTORS AND DIFFERENTIALS 47 b)Take for f : M → N a scalar function f : M → R. This is a submersion at po if dfpo = 0. The submersion theorem asserts that near such a point there are coordinates (xi ) so that f becomes a coordinate function, say f (p) = x1 (p).
