#### Adding branes to hyperkahler manifolds

String Theory & Geometry Seminar Andrew Dancer (Oxford)

 at: 13:30 ICroom Ballroom, 58 Princes Gate abstract: We investigate quaternionic (especially hyperkahler) analogues of the symplectic cut construction. In low dimensions this can be interpreted as a adding a brane to a hyperkahler manifold.
