Mirror symmetry for three-dimensional supersymmetric theories

I will introduce supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions with four or eight supercharges. I will then discuss mirror symmetry for theories with eight supercharges; first by introducing the examples discussed by Intriligator and Seiberg and then by describing the Hanany-Witten construction. I will then discuss mirror symmetry for abelian theories with four supercharges and its connection with the Hori-Vafa construction in two dimensions.
