Title:Odd dimensional generalized geometry
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Marco Aldi, Virginia Commonwealth University
Abstract:
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.
