Nikon Kurnosov will talk on 8th December, at 1.45pm UK time, or 2.45pm Belgian time. The title of Nikon’s talk is “Deformation theory and geometry of Bogomolov-Guan manifolds” and the abstract is below.
Deformation theory and geometry of Bogomolov-Guan manifolds
In 1994, Guan published a series of papers constructing non-Kähler holomorphic symplectic manifolds, challenging a conjecture by Todorov. These examples, called now BG manifolds were given a more transparent presentation by Bogomolov in ’96, which emphasizes the analogy with the Kodaira-Thurston example of non-Kähler symplectic surfaces. We will discuss some important properties of BG manifolds: deformation theory, which is quite similar to that of the hyperKaehler case, algebraic reduction and submanifolds.
