The aim of the course is to give an introduction to the mirror construction by Gross-Seibert. We will begin with the semi-flat SYZ construction as a motivation to the Gross-Seibert construction. We will cover toric degenerations and logarithmic geometry, as a tool to understand mirror symmetry. Most of the time, we will illustrate the ideas mainly using examples.

Basic toric geometry, complex geometry and algebraic geometry

1. Tropical Geometry and Mirror Symmetry, Mark Gross
2. An invitation to toric degenerations, Mark Gross and Bernd Seibert
