**Description**:

The aim of the book is to provide a pedagogical introduction to the field of mirror symmetry from both a mathematical and physical perspective. After covering the relevant background material, the main part of the monograph is devoted to the proof of mirror symmetry from various viewpoints. More advanced topics are also discussed. In particular, topological strings at higher genera and the notion of holomorphic anomaly.

These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.
