Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: The Calabi-Yau equation and symplectic geometry
Speaker: Ben Weinkove
Speaker Info: Harvard University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will discuss the Calabi-Yau equation on a compact symplectic manifold with a compatible almost complex structure. This is an analogue of the equation on Kahler manifolds solved by S.-T. Yau thirty years ago. I will discuss some progress on a conjecture of Donaldson about this equation and how it relates to questions in symplectic geometry. Part of this is joint work with Valentino Tosatti and S.-T. Yau.
