The need for such a construction is motivated by certain questions in mirror symmetry.
For instance, a proof of the conjecture of Kontsevich-Soibelman [KS06, Conjecture 1] (see also Gross-Wilson [GW00, Conjecture 6.2]), which is related to the Strominger-Yau-Zaslow mirror symmetry [SYZ96], for the case of K3 surfaces directly follows from our description of collapsing.
The topics include three-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories and Hilbert series, quantized Coulomb branches of Jordan quiver gauge theories and cyclotomic rational Cherednik algebras, a journey from the Hitchen section of the oper moduli, pure SU(2) gauge theory partition function and generalized Bessel kernal, contracting the Weierstrass locus to a point, and spectral theory and mirror symmetry.

Two units of 5 mm trocar were placed on the left side for mirror symmetry image with the opposite of classical laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
This duality between two CY manifolds is known as the mirror symmetry [3].
"Further, the protons enrich in the bump of the pear and create a specific charge distribution in the nucleus," Scheck said. "This violates the theory of mirror symmetry and relates to the violation shown in the distribution of matter and antimatter in our universe."
All other three frieze groups * [infinity][infinity], 2 * [infinity], and * 22[infinity] can not be realised as symmetry group of 1-periodic monocoronal tiling because they contain a mirror symmetry in the direction orthogonal to layers which is impossible for both types of non-symmetric layers.
In this paper, we present a more objective interpretation of this experimental result of subwavelength imaging as due to a source coherence and mirror symmetry assumption.
Even in the rare cases where a right tusk emerges too, it also spirals to the left instead of having the mirror symmetry usual for mammal body parts.
If either [S.sup.i.sub.t,up] or [S.sup.i.sub.t,low] is greater than or equal to the threshold [s.sub.th], the rectangle area is regarded as a region with mirror symmetry about a vertical axis.
Washington, July 8 (ANI): University of Michigan scientists have argued a long-held assumption that the universe has mirror symmetry, like a basketball.
Subjects discussed include mirror symmetry for elliptic curves, symbolic summation approach to fine optimal nested sums, logarithmic structure and TQFT and Fredholm realizations of elliptic symbols.
