Title: Super Picard-Fuchs equation and monodromies for supermanifolds

Abstract

Following, Aganagic and Vafa (e-print hep-th/0403192) and Hori and Vafa (e-print hep-th/0002222), we discuss the Picard-Fuchs equation for the super Landau-Ginsburg mirror to the super Calabi-Yau in WCP{sup (3vertical bar2)}[1,1,1,3 vertical bar 1,5] (using techniques of Greene and Lazaroiu [Nucl. Phys. B 604, 181 (2001), e-print hep-th/0001025] and Misra [Fortschr. Phys. 52, 831 (2004), e-print hep-th/0311186]), Meijer basis of solutions, and monodromies (at 0,1 and {infinity}) in the large and small complex structure limits, as well as obtain the mirror hypersurface, which in the large Kaehler limit turns out to be either a bidegree-(6,6) hypersurface in WCP{sup (3|1)}[1,1,1,2]xWCP{sup (1vertical bar1)}[1,1 vertical bar 6] or a (Z{sub 2} singular) bidegree-(6,12) hypersurface in WCP{sup (3vertical bar1)}[1,1,2,6 vertical bar 6]xWCP{sup (1vertical bar1)}[1,1 vertical bar 6].

  • Local and global properties of the moduli space of Calabi--Yau type compactifications determine the low energy parameters of the string effective action. We show that the moduli space geometry is entirely encoded in the Picard--Fuchs equations for the periods of the Calabi--Yau [ital H][sup (3)]-cohomology.

  • We propose an extended set of differential operators for local mirror symmetry. If X is Calabi-Yau such that dim H{sub 4}(X,Z)=0, then we show that our operators fully describe mirror symmetry. In the process, a conjecture for intersection theory for such X is uncovered. We also find operators on several examples of type X=K{sub S} through similar techniques. In addition, open string Picard-Fuchs systems are considered.
  • We consider a family of genus 2 hyperelliptic curves of even order and obtain explicitly the systems of 5 linear ordinary differential equations for periods of the corresponding Abelian integrals of first, second, and third kind, as functions of some parameters of the curves. The systems can be regarded as extensions of the well-studied Picard–Fuchs equations for periods of complete integrals of first and second kind on odd hyperelliptic curves. The periods we consider are linear combinations of the action variables of several integrable systems, in particular the generalized Neumann system with polynomial separable potentials. Thus the solutions of themore » extended Picard–Fuchs equations can be used to study various properties of the actions.« less
  • The solution to the Korteveg--de Vries equation is interpreted as a conformal field of conformal dimension two in a system having a nonvanishing central charge. Its N = 1, 2 supersymmetrized extensions are discussed.
  • On 2012 June 5-6, the transit of Venus provided a rare opportunity to determine the radius of the Sun using solar imagers observing a well-defined object, namely, the planet and its atmosphere, partially occulting the Sun. A new method has been developed to estimate the solar radius during a planetary transit. It is based on the estimation of the spectral solar radiance decrease in a region around the contact between the planet and the Sun at the beginning of the ingress and at the end of the egress. The extrapolation to zero of the radiance decrease versus the Sun-to-Venus apparentmore » angular distance allows estimation of the solar radius at the time of first and fourth contacts. This method presents the advantage of being almost independent on the plate scale, the distortion, the refraction by the planetary atmosphere, and on the point-spread function of the imager. It has been applied to two space solar visible imagers, SODISM/PICARD and HMI/SDO. The found results are mutually consistent, despite their different error budgets: 959.''85 ± 0.''19 (1σ) for SODISM at 607.1 nm and 959.''90 ± 0.''06 (1σ) for HMI at 617.3 nm.« less
