The two major groups who made the discovery reported their papers here. Greene, Plesser, and Candelas gave details on their findings; Witten gave his interpretation which was vital for future development. Vafa introduced the concept of quantum cohomology. Several mathematicians, including Katz, Morrison, Wilson, Roan, Tian, Hübsch, Yau, and Borcea discussed current knowledge about CalabiYau manifolds. Ferrara and his coauthors addressed special geometry and \(N=2\) supergravity. Roček proposed possible mirrors for CalabiYau manifolds with torsion. This collection continues to be an important book on this spectacular achievement in algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. Also available from the AMS are the related volumes, Mirror Symmetry II (1996), Mirror Symmetry III (1999), and Mirror Symmetry IV (2002). Titles in this series are copublished with International Press, Cambridge, MA. Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians and mathematical physicists working in algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, and number theory. Reviews From a review of the first edition ... "This volume is very timely, giving very broad coverage of one of the important developments in mathematics and physics today ... This volume is a requisite for those working in the area of CY \(3\)folds, as well as those interested in mathematical implications of contemporary physics."
