G2 Manifolds Program Seminar: Lorenzo Foscolo

Title: Compact nearly Kahler 6-manifolds Speaker: Lorenzo Foscolo Date: Friday, October 3, 2014 Time: 1:15pm – 2:30pm Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center [box, type=”download”]Watch the Video. [/box] Abstract: Compact six dimensional nearly Kähler manifolds are the cross-sections of Riemannian cones with holonomy G2. Currently there are only four known examples, which are all homogeneous. In this […]
