Summary: Mirror symmetry states that to every Calabi-Yau manifold \(X\) with complex structure and symplectic symplectic structure there is another dual manifold \(X^\vee\), so that the properties of \(X\) associated to the complex structure (e.g., periods, bounded derived category of coherent sheaves) reproduce properties of \(X^\vee\) associated to its symplectic structure (e.g., counts of pseudo holomorphic curves and discs).
