Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Generalized complex structures in flux compactifications of type II theories

Presented by Mariana Grana (Saclay),

9 June 2006 00:00 in CM221

"Generalized complex geometry, introduced by Hitchin in 2002, combines complex and symplectic geometry in a single mathematical framework. We will show that it is the natural language to describe compactifications in the presence of fluxes, both from the point of view of effective 4D actions, as well as to characterize their vacua."
