String theory predicts that the universe has several extra dimensions, which have the structure of Calabi-Yau varieties. The universes are defined by these varieties, which are conjectured to occur in physically indistinguishable pairs. The mathematical field of mirror symmetry seeks to understand the geometric correspondences between paired Calabi-Yau varieties.
