Equivalences of derived categories of double mirrors


Given a Calabi-Yau complete intersection in a toric Fano variety, there are various ways to construct the mirror. Sometimes these mirrors are isomorphic and sometimes they are not. These distinct 'double' mirrors should be equivalent in some way if they all have a shot at being the 'correct' mirror in some setting of mirror symmetry. We will discuss the Batyrev-Borisov and Berglund-Hübsch-Krawitz construction and the double mirrors which arise, as well as their relationship through variation of geometric invariant theory quotients, Landau-Ginzburg models, and derived equivalence. This is joint work with Tyler Kelly.
