Topological Strings and their Physical Applications

Topological Strings and their Physical Applications
by Andrew Neitzke, Cumrun Vafa

Publisher: arXiv 2005
Number of pages: 82

We give an introductory review of topological strings and their application to various aspects of superstrings and supersymmetric gauge theories. This review includes developing the necessary mathematical background for topological strings, such as the notions of Calabi-Yau manifold and toric geometry, as well as physical methods developed for solving them, such as mirror symmetry, large N dualities, the topological vertex and quantum foam.
