Dual invertible polynomials with permutation symmetries and the orbifold Euler characteristic
P. Berglund, T. Hübsch, and M. Henningson proposed a method to construct mirror symmetric Calabi–Yau manifolds. They considered a pair consisting of an invertible polynomial and of a finite (abelian) group
of its diagonal symmetries together with a dual pair. A. Takahashi suggested a method to generalize this construction to symmetry groups generated by some diagonal symmetries and some permutations of variables. In a previous paper, we explained that this construction should work only under a special condition on the permutation group called parity condition (PC). Here we prove that, if the permutation group is cyclic and satisfies PC, then the reduced orbifold Euler characteristics of the Milnor fibres of dual pairs coincide up to sign.
