Mirror Symmetry and Fano Manifolds

14 May 2012

We describe how one can recover the Mori--Mukai classification of smooth 3-dimensional Fano manifolds using mirror symmetry, and indicate how the same ideas might apply to the classification of smooth 4-dimensional Fano manifolds. This is joint work in progress with Corti, Galkin, Golyshev, and Kasprzyk.
