|Abstract||These notes are a writeup of lectures given at the twelfth Oporto meeting on ``Geometry, Topology, and Physics,'' and at the Adelaide workshop ``Strings and Mathematics 2003,'' primarily geared towards a physics audience. We review current work relating boundary states in the open string B model on Calabi-Yau manifolds to sheaves. Such relationships provide us with a mechanism for counting open string states in situations where the physical spectrum calculation is nearly intractable -- after translating to mathematics, such calculations become easy. We describe several different approaches to these models, and also describe how these models are changed by varying physical circumstances -- flat B field backgrounds, orbifolds, and nonzero Higgs vevs. We also discuss mathematical interpretations of operator products, and how such mathematical interpretations can be checked physically. One of the motivations for this work is to understand the precise physical relationship between boundary states in the open string B model and derived categories in mathematics, and we outline what is currently known of the relationship.|
|Learning Resource Type||Article|
National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
