Next Week

Here is a selection of seminars that might be of interest to string theorists in Oxford:

On Monday, July 31, at 12:00 in L5, a seminar in the Relativity series:
Claude LeBrun (Stonybrook)
The Einstein-Maxwell Equations & Conformally Kaehler Geometry
Further information: Any constant-scalar-curvature Kaehler (cscK) metric on a complex surface may be viewed as a solution of the Einstein-Maxwell equations, and this allows one to produce solutions of these equations on any 4-manifold that arises as a compact complex surface with even first Betti number. However, not all solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations on such manifolds arise in this way. In this lecture, I will describe a construction of new compact examples that are Hermitian, but not Kaehler.
