Brian Greene

American theoretical physicist and string theorist. Greene has worked on mirror symmetry, relating two different Calabiā€“Yau manifolds (concretely, relating the conifold to one of its orbifolds). He also described the flop transition, a mild form of topology change, showing that topology in string theory can change at the conifold point.
