Topic:

On Pfaffian Calabi-Yau 3-folds and Mirror Symmetry

Description:

We construct new smooth CY 3-folds with 1-dimensional Kaehler moduli by pfaffian method and determine their fundamental topological invariants. The existence of CY 3-folds with the computed invariants was previously conjectured by C. van Enckevort and D. van Straten. We then report mirror symmetry for these non-complete intersection CY 3-folds. We explicitly build their mirror candidates, some of which have 2 LCSLs, and check the mirror phenomenon.
