Homological mirror symmetry for a Calabi-Yau hypersurface in projective space

We prove homological mirror symmetry for a smooth Calabi-Yau hypersurface in projective space. In the one-dimensional case, this is the elliptic curve, and our result is related to that of Polishchuk-Zaslow; in the two-dimensional case, it is the K3 quartic surface, and our result reproduces that of Seidel; and in the three-dimensional case, it is the quintic three-fold (also considered by Nohara-Ueda, using our work). After stating the result carefully, we will describe some of the techniques used in its proof, and illustrate the one-dimensional case with pictures.
