Mirror symmetry shows the relationship between Geometry Objects called Calabi-Yau Manifolds. To express various mathematical versions of mirror symmetry, you need to know the geometric concepts. Focusing on various aspects of mirror symmetry, this **[course_title] **is suitable for you having knowledge of symplectic and complex geometry. So, this **[course_title] **you will be able to aptly understand Hodge Structures, Homological Mirror Symmetry, Lagrangian Fibrations, beyond the Calabi-Yau Case etc.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
