Description

This two-day minischool will serve to prepare graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other researchers less familiar with G2 manifolds for the five-day workshop on G2 manifolds immediately following, on Aug 21-25. Tentative mini-course topics include:

  • Introduction to G2 manifolds (Spiro Karigiannis, Waterloo)
  • Constructions of G2 manifolds (Alexei Kovalev, Cambridge)
  • Gauge Theory on G2 manifolds (Thomas Walpuski, Michigan State)
  • Calibrated Submanifolds of G2 manifolds (Conan Leung, CUHK)
  • Geometric flows of G2 structures (Jason Lotay, UCL)

    Registration available now on the minischool website.
