Title: SYZ Conjecture beyond Mirror Symmetry

Abstract: Strominger-Yau-Zaslow conjecture is one of the guiding principles in mirror symmetry, which not only predicts the geometric structures of Calabi-Yau manifolds but also provides a recipe for mirror construction. Besides mirror symmetry, the SYZ conjecture itself is the holy grail in geometrical analysis and closely related to the behavior of the Ricci-flat metrics. In this talk, we will explain how SYZ fibrations on log Calabi-Yau surfaces detect the non-standard semi-flat metric which generalized the semi-flat metrics of Greene-Shapere-Vafa-Yau. Furthermore, we will use the SYZ fibration on log Calabi-Yau surfaces to prove the Torelli theorem of gravitational instantons of type ALH^*. This is based on the joint works with T. Collins and A. Jacob.
