Generalized Kahler Potentials for Supergravity

Regular Seminar Nick Halmagyi (Chicago University, EFI)

14:00 IC
room Huxley 503

I will discuss the targetspace manifestation of the most general (2,2) sigma models with H flux, these include chiral, twisted chiral and semi chiral superfields. I will describe the appearance of a generalized Kahler potential and also outline the use of the deformation space of generalized complex structures in supergravity.
