Hyper-Kahler Geometry: October 29 – November 2, 2012

Organized by Ljudmila Kamenova (Stony Brook), Nigel Hitchin (Oxford), Eyal Markman (UMass, Amherst) and Justin Sawon (UNC)


A number of new developments make it timely to hold a workshop on hyperkahler geometry, focussing on:
1. The GMN construction of hyperkahler metrics.
2. Verbitsky’s Torelli Theorem (2009)
3. Simultaneous resolutions of symplectic singularities.
4. Derived geometry of hyperkahler manifolds.
