Columbia Mathematics Department Colloquium

"Geometry of special Holonomy"


Conan Leung

(Chinese University of Hong Kong)

In this talk, I will survey recent work on the subject of geometry
of special holonomy. We give a unified desciption of all these geometries
in term of normed division algebras. Another closely related description
is also explained by using vector cross product. We also applied these
approaches to obtain new results in these geometries.
