Differential geometry, basic complex analysis.


Hyperkahler manifolds form an extremely symmetric class of manifolds of great importance throughout mathematics and physics. I'll introduce their basic properties before indicating many examples of known constructions. Finally, I hope to detail Gaiotto-Moore-Neitzke's conjectural description of Hitchin moduli spaces.



Lecturer Intro

Dr. Tripathy is a researcher interested in the geometry of string theories and supersymmetric field theories.

      Record: YesLevel: GraduateLanguage: EnglishPrerequisiteLinear algebra, basics of Riemmanian geometryAbstractThe classification of Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy contains two “exceptional” cases: G2 and Spin(7). Manifolds with holonomy contained in G2 or Spin(7) are called G2-manifolds or Spin(7)-manifolds, respectively. In this course, I will introduce various topics of G2 and Spi...
