Toric Degenerations and Laurent polynomials related to Givental's Landau-Ginzburg models
For an appropriate class of Fano complete intersections in toric varieties, we prove that there is a concrete relationship between degenerations to specific toric subvarieties and expressions for Givental's Landau-Ginzburg models as Laurent polynomials. As a result, we show that Fano varieties presented as complete intersections in partial flag manifolds admit degenerations to Gorenstein toric weak Fano varieties, and their Givental Landau-Ginzburg models can be expressed as corresponding Laurent polynomials. We also use this to show that all of the Laurent polynomials obtained by Coates, Kasprzyk and Prince by the so called Przyjalkowski method correspond to toric degenerations of the corresponding Fano variety. We discuss applications to geometric transitions of Calabi-Yau varieties.

A Modular Quintic Calabi-Yau Threefold of Level 55
In this note we search the parameter space of Horrocks-Mumford quintic threefolds and locate a Calabi-Yau threefold that is modular, in the sense that the $L$-function of its middle-dimensional cohomology is associated with a classical modular form of weight 4 and level 55.

Keywords: Calabi-Yau threefold, non-rigid Calabi-Yau threefold, two-dimensional Galois representation, modular variety, Horrocks-Mumford vector bundle

Examples of Calabi--Yau 3-Folds of $\mathbb{P}^{7}$ with $\rho=1$
We give some examples of Calabi--Yau $3$-folds with $\rho=1$ and $\rho=2$, defined over $\mathbb{Q}$ and constructed as $4$-codimensional subvarieties of $\mathbb{P}^7$ via commutative algebra methods. We explain how to deduce their Hodge diamond and top Chern classes from computer based computations over some finite field $\mathbb{F}_{p}$. Three of our examples (of degree $17$ and $20$) are new. The two others (degree $15$ and $18$) are known, and we recover their well-known invariants with our method. These examples are built out of Gulliksen--Neg{\aa}rd and Kustin--Miller complexes of locally free sheaves. Finally, we give two new examples of Calabi--Yau $3$-folds of $\mathbb{P}^6$ of degree $14$ and $15$ (defined over $\mathbb{Q}$). We show that they are not deformation equivalent to Tonoli's examples of the same degree, despite the fact that they have the same invariants $(H^3,c_2\cdot H, c_3)$ and $\rho=1$.
