Title:Generalized complex structures and their odd-dimensional counterparts
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Aissa Wade, PSU
Abstract:
Generalized complex structures were first introduced by N. Hitchin. I will give a brief review of the subject. I will then discuss their odd-dimensional analogs, called generalized contact structures. I will provide examples and methods for constructing generalized contact structures. This is a joint work with Y.-S Poon.
