Ricci solitons

Regular Seminar Andrew Dancer (Oxford)

16:00 City U.
room CG04

A Ricci soliton is a generalisation of an Einstein metric which evolves in a very simple way under the Ricci flow. We discuss ways of producing examples of Ricci solitons by looking for solutions with a high degree of symmetry

Adding branes to hyperkahler manifolds

String Theory & Geometry Seminar Andrew Dancer (Oxford)

13:30 IC
room Ballroom, 58 Princes Gate

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.
