A proposal for nonabelian $(0,2)$ mirrors
Pages: 1549 – 1596
In this paper we give a proposal for mirrors to $(0,2)$ supersymmetric gauged linear sigma models (GLSMs), for those $(0,2)$ GLSMs which are deformations of $(2,2)$ GLSMs. Specifically, we propose a construction of $(0,2)$ mirrors for $(0,2)$ GLSMs with $E$ terms that are linear and diagonal, reducing to both the Hori–Vafa prescription as well as a recent $(2,2)$ nonabelian mirrors proposal on the $(2,2)$ locus. For the special case of abelian $(0,2)$ GLSMs, two of the authors have previously proposed a systematic construction, which is both simplified and generalized by the proposal here.
