Title: Deformations of Generalized Kähler Manifolds
Speaker: Marco Gualtieri
Speaker Info: University of Toronto
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Underlying any generalized Kähler manifold is a holomorphic Poisson variety whose Poisson structure "factorizes" in a certain sense into a product of holomorphic Dirac structures. We will explain what this means, and describe some aspects of the deformation theory of these structures. We also discuss some implications of Hitchin's recent unobstructedness result for holomorphic Poisson structures.
