|Title:||Odd dimensional generalized geometry|
|Speaker:||Marco Aldi, Virginia Commonwealth University|
|Generalized geometry is the study of the geometry of the generalized tangent bundle (direct sum of the tangent and cotangent bundle) of a manifold. Partly because of the connection with supersymmetric sigma-models, most of the literature on generalized geometry specializes to even-dimensional manifolds. The odd-dimensional case, pioneered by Wade and Poon, is much less understood. In this talk we report on some recent progress (joint work with Daniele Grandini) on odd-dimensional generalized geometry including a spinorial formulation and T-duality.|
