Generalized Geometry and Applications
2-6 of March 2020
This five-day workshop is addressed to researchers and advanced graduate students in differential geometry, global analysis, algebra and mathematical physics. Its main focus is on generalized geometry, understood as the study of Courant algebroids and associated geometric structures, as well as on its applications to the study of the systems of partial differential equations and dualities occurring in supergravity and string theory.
The workshop is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft under Germany's Excellence Strategy - Excellence Cluster 2121 "Quantum Universe" and the Research Training Group 1670 "Mathematics inspired by String Theory and Quantum Field Theory".
The workshop poster is available here.
