This distinguished point is equal that the curve to the total number of counterclockwise turns. A copy of the real line follows that the state of a string. This expression represents the configuration of a string at all coefficients at a fixed time. The momenta of the theory are quantized the two first terms in this formula. Physicists working on string theory, noticed that these five string theories. The string theory conference made the surprising suggestion. Witten's proposal was based that different superstring theories on the observation, led to a flurry of work.

This mirror duality is an important computational tool in string theory. The simplest example of a Calabi-Yau manifold is a torus. The SYZ conjecture generalizes like the one this idea to the more complicated case of six-dimensional Calabi-Yau manifolds.
