Abstract

I will describe a new method for understanding a large class of
generalized complex manifolds, in which we view them as usual
symplectic structures on a manifold with a kind of log structure. I
will explain this structure in detail and explain how it can be used
to prove a Tian-Todorov unobstructedness theorem as well as
topological obstructions for existence of nondegenerate generalized
complex structures.
