Twisted Generalized Calabi-Yau Manifolds and Topological Sigma Models with Flux (Part 1)
Speaker(s): Yi Li
Abstract: In these lectures, we examine how twisted generalized Calabi-Yau (GCY) manifolds arise in the construction of a general class of topological sigma models with non-trivial three-form flux. The topological sigma model defined on a twisted GCY can be regarded as a simultaneous generalization of the mor... read more

Supergravity Backgrounds from Generalized Calabi-Yau Manifolds (Part 1)
Speaker(s): Mariana Grana
Abstract: We will see how generalized Calabi-Yau manifolds as defined by Hitchin emerge from supersymmetry equations in type II theories. In the first lecture, we will review the formalism of G-structures, which is central in the context of compactification with fluxes. In the second lecture we will see how (... read more
