Fredagskollokvium: A mathematician among string theorists

Geir Ellingsrud, Professor, Mathematics Department, UiO 

In the last part of the previous century the principle of "mirror symmetry"
surfaced from the deep of  string theory.  May be the impact on physics was not that great, but the impact on mathematics was tremendous.
I was lucky to witness this process and even gave a modest contribution.  My lecture is a retrospective view on these experiences of mine.
