First of all, we show this Landau-Ginzburg model to be isomorphic to one proposed for homogeneous spaces in a previous work by the second author.

N2 - We consider the Grassmannian X=Gr n−k(C n) and describe a ‘mirror dual’ Landau-Ginzburg model (Xˇ ∘,W q:Xˇ ∘→C), where Xˇ ∘ is the complement of a particular anti-canonical divisor in a Langlands dual Grassmannian Xˇ, and we express W succinctly in terms of Plücker coordinates. First of all, we show this Landau-Ginzburg model to be isomorphic to one proposed for homogeneous spaces in a previous work by the second author. Secondly we show it to be a partial compactification of the Landau-Ginzburg model defined in the 1990's by Eguchi, Hori, and Xiong. Finally we construct inside the Gauss-Manin system associated to W q a free submodule which recovers the trivial vector bundle with small Dubrovin connection defined out of Gromov-Witten invariants of X. We also prove a T-equivariant version of this isomorphism of connections. Our results imply in the case of Grassmannians an integral formula for a solution to the quantum cohomology D-module of a homogeneous space, which was conjectured by the second author. They also imply a series expansion of the top term in Givental's J-function, which was conjectured in a 1998 paper by Batyrev, Ciocan-Fontanine, Kim and van Straten.
